Lazyeyes have just released their breezy and atmospheric new single, Islip. It’s the first track from their upcoming EP, coming later this year.
Lazyeyes is a three-piece shoegaze/dream-pop band from Brooklyn, New York formed in the summer of 2012. The band released their debut self-titled EP the following January 2013 which was immediately heralded by The Deli Magazine as Best Psych/Shoegaze band in New York.
After a sold-out record release show at legendary Williamsburg venue Glasslands, the Lazyeyes EP garnered widespread acclaim from numerous underground music bloggers. Best New Bands described the their single Wait as, “…an excellent example of the group’s ability to erupt at an expansive, pyrotechnic level all the while sharply delivering pop-laden hooks.” Purple Sneakers called the EP “…a moody and anthemic record, equal parts shoegaze and dream pop.” Soon after, tracks from the EP were featured on BBC Radio, XM Radio and various other FM stations worldwide. The band was founded by guitarist/vocalist Jason Abrishami (The Twees) who was joined by Paul Volpe (Triple Cobra) on bass and Jeremy Sampson (Eastern Hollows) on drums. The band plans to tour in support of their upcoming EP.
