Band To Watch: Lazyeyes - Wait EP

Lazyeyes just release their Wait EP and this Brooklyn trio is ready to cement a spot in your late winter/early spring playlist.

My initial thought from the opener "Nostalgia" is that they have sound a bit Strokes-ish. Then, their propensity to interweave aspects of west coast fuzz rock with east coast dream pop, all in a nice 90's candy shell slapped me across the ear hole. And now I find myself humming or bobbing my head along to the tunes, even when I'm not listening. Not bad since they've only been truly committed to the band since last summer.

For any of you in the Brooklyn area, they are playing at Glasslands tonight (Friday, Feb 1st) in celebration of the release. Head out, should be a great show. Deli Magazine just proclaimed them “Best Psych/Shoegaze band in New York” for 2012. If you can't make it, no need to fret. Wait is aptly titled as the band is about to head back into the studio to work on their follow up and set up tour dates for late Spring.

Below, you can check out the video for title track and first single "Wait," which is currently getting a lot of radio run in the UK.
