The LAZY EYES – ” Song Book “

The Lazy Eyes

The Lazy Eyes are a four-piece psychedelic rock band based in Sydney, Australia. The band are Harvey Geraghty (vocals, guitar, keyboard), Itay Sasha (vocals, guitar), Leon Karagic (bass) and Noah Martin (drums).

Early Tame Impala and King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard are clear sonic references for The Lazy Eyes. While the four-piece Australian band says that it’s hard to not wear your influences on your sleeve, tracks like “Fuzz Jam” have many of us excited to hear where the group takes psych rock on its full-length debut, out later this year.

The Lazy Eyes, is a world unto itself. It’s all journey and all destination, a decidedly modern marvel of psych-rock that’s unpretentious in construction but precious where it counts.

Harvey Geraghty, Itay Shachar and Noah Martin met in their early years at Sydney’s Newtown High School of the Performing Arts. They became fast friends and began to busk around Sydney, their burgeoning band bound together by long hours carting their instruments around the city. Around 2015 The Lazy Eyes decided to formalise the band as a unit, a decision that coincided neatly with their meeting of Leon Karagic, who provided much-needed bass to their ensemble.

Off the back of their first two EPs, released in 2020 and 2021, The Lazy Eyes have sold out numerous shows along Australia’s east coast, including their own music festival, Lazyfest; garnered praise from outlets including KCRW, FBi Radio, triple j Unearthed, BBC 6 Music andRadio 1, and NME. Their reputation continues to grow despite the fact that jaunts at SXSW and The Great Escape were cancelled in light of the pandemic.

SongBook” is evidence of an edifice slowly being formed, a trepidatious first footstep by the band into the wider world. The dynamic “Fuzz Jam”, the latest taste from “SongBook”, sees the band at the height of their powers, deftly slipping from one mode to another in seconds. Combining the piquant feel of classic 60s psych with sharp Gen Z wit, it’s magnanimous and effusive, a vivid insight.
