While we have to enjoy all the nice Easter weekend from either a back garden, apartment balcony or our one daily-allotted walk, its pretty good timing to sink into something loose and evocative like The Lazy Eyes’ new single Tangerine.
Situated in Sydney, Australia, the four-piece provide the sort of evocative escape that will have you getting all excited for when lockdown is finally lifted – early evenings in the sea, an enrapturing gig following a day of drinking in the sun, the perfect spontaneous afternoon.
The surrealist abstract nature of their lyricism only heightens the lackadaisical mood that wanders amongst the atmosphere of the song – Harvey Geraghty pinching himself out of a daydream to capture the colourful imagery they conduct for themselves – letting their imaginations run free in the consistently mundane routine of life.
While at first they may come across as breezy and easy-going – there’s a real pop sensibility to them that’s allowing them to truly delve deep – the increasingly infectious foundations they build upon with tranquility and ease belies their ability. The Lazy Eyes are immediately providing an authentic and broad sound.
