They’re the psychedelic four-piece who hail from Sydney, Australia, ready to whisk you off onto a magical mystery tour of their own.  An attempt at untangling hazy, drunken memories from a heavy weekend down the beach – whether it be Bondi or Brighton. After forming in 2015, the pals are fast making a name for themselves with their dreamy psych-rock, with singles Cheesy Love Song and Tangerine highlighting how far they can push their sonic sound.

Lazy Eyes have announced the upcoming release of their second EP, dropping a new single and sharing tour dates. The band return in 2021 today with a new single, ‘Where’s My Brain???’, the first taste of The Lazy Eyes’ next chapter. In a press release, the band explained that ‘Where’s My Brain???’ was written during the band’s formative years, at a time “when the setlist was lacking fast paced, energetic tracks” ,

“We needed that one last song that the audience could mosh and get sweaty to,” they said. “The song is loosely about losing your mind over something and wanting to have a tantrum, but really it’s just a jam.” . The psych-rock Sydney outfit dropped their debut EP, ‘EP1’, in June of last year. Upon its release, NME said in its review that The Lazy Eyes “coast from dazed pop to shameless love ballads, claiming pole position for the next mainstage psych outfit along the way”.

“These Aussie teens are blazing a fresh path for psych-pop with a mesmeric throwback sound – and as that dialogue might suggest, they’re not cutting any corners.”

The Lazy Eyes make no qualms about wearing their psych-rock influences on their sleeves, but do so with the kind of cheekiness only a teen band could get away with (take the self-deprecating title of the charming ‘Cheesy Love Song’, for example). Written largely during their high school years, The Lazy Eyes’ sole EP already provokes equal measures of nostalgia and “cringeness” for the group – a sign they’re ready to evolve and carve their own path to the big league.

A cross between The Flaming Lips and The Beach Boys. Wonderful stuff.

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