Lazyeyes is a three-piece garage / shoegaze / dreampop band from Brooklyn, NY that was formed in the summer of 2012. The band self-released their sophomore EP, New Year on January 6th, 2015, which was quickly picked up and reissued by Burger Records cassette imprint, Wiener Records.

Lazyeyes was a featured artist in the November 2014 issue of NME Magazine and, in December, Stereogum described their sound as “a muscular, riff-happy brand of guitar-based dream-pop,” going on to proclaim, “their songs burst with angular hooks and polished melodies.” Their single, “Adaptation” also received high praise from Interview Magazine, who wrote, “‘Adaptation’s’ fast-paced, garage-tinged guitar riff draws the listener in, propelling you through chorus and verse. It is both urgent and reassuringly familiar.”

The band released a self-titled EP in January 2013 and 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 underground music bloggers. Best New Bands described the band’s 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.” And the blog Purple Sneakers pronounced the EP as “a moody and anthemic record, equal parts shoegaze and dream pop.” Soon after, tracks from the EP were featured on BBC Radio, XM Radio & various other FM stations worldwide.
