The Australian outfit share a mosh-ready, psychedelic mind-melter which teases the band’s forthcoming EP.

I’m writing this on a cold dark winter evening in little England while my headphones block out the crashing showers that drench the poorly lit streets outside, on the other side of the planet Australia is waking up to a warm summer day. The stark differences aren’t just in climate, but also in the handling of the pandemic which has seen Australia now being able to run live shows and festivals while at best, we in the U.K are having to make do with virtual shows due to continuous failings from the government.

There seems to be a continuous stream of fantastic new bands coming from down under. One of the bands who have crash landed onto our shores in a wonderful wave of psychedelic acts is The Lazy Eyes who’ve brought the summer with them in new single Where’s My Brain??? The Sydney psychedelic quartet have teased their forthcoming second EP with a sprawling cyclone of searing psychedelia. Where’s My Brain??? is a mighty and mosh-ready mind-melter akin to Melbourne megalodons King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard.

Take the fuzzed-out and frenetic groove-led sounds of said psych-rock royalty and add a little sprinkle of glam-filled, saccharine psych-pop and you’re about there. The Lazy Eyes are a band with enormous potential, I can’t wait to see where their talents take them. Find the band on Spotify here.
