Cha:dy – Lazy

London based Parisian Cha:dy looks at young people’s mental health on ‘Lazy’.

A former BIMM (British and Irish Modern Music Institute, ‘case you didn’t know) student, having moved to London back in 2015 to focus on her solo career, Cha:dy’s songwriting skills aren’t just the product of higher education but, from honest reflections of her own past experiences.

“The hook came to me when I told someone how miserable I was feeling, and they answered me ‘Stop being lazy!’, which made me feel very misunderstood and inspired me to write this song,” says Cha:dy. “At the time, I thought it was just a phase and did not recognise those were the signs of deeper unhappiness and problem, that I needed to do work on. I feel like it was important for me to write this song instead of something more poetic or romantic just because it’s real and I think it will resonate with a lot of people.”

Cha:dy tackles the ‘lazy’ bomb with unshakeable honesty, referencing day to day issues and how everyday norms can become the most monumental tasks when facing depression. “Haven’t showered in days/nor talked to a human in days/truth is I’m done with it all/I’m skipping calls, skipping parties”. Cha:dy gives herself the space to absolve the ‘lazy’ moniker given to her, channelling her depression into something that many will find comfort in knowing it’s not just them who’s ‘lazy’.
