Lazyeyes is a three-piece from Brooklyn, New York. Formed in the summer of 2012. The band released a self-titled EP the following 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. 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 behind their up-and-coming EP.
V B A is a band. Vince Bentley and Ashley are in that band. They play drums and guitars and bass and music like a blind poet's lucid dream of paganblack candles over a deathonic dim sea.
Captains of your dreamboat/planet, the key to your destruction, children of the mind, whatever. We're edible. We'll pick your nose for you in your sleep- braid your hair, rub your feet. Thanks! Say hi!
"Haybaby's newest EP SUPERPRESENT reinforces the band's talent for mixing grungy guitar with sticky sweet girl/boy vocals into a sophisticated combination that's addictive and complex. Along the lines of the Pixies, their girl/boy vocals shy away from cute, and their catchy hooks take on edgy pop-qualities reminiscent of Pavement. While every song of this 4-track EP are winners, "Weather King" particularly shines. The bass line is suppressive and teasy allowing the explosion of bright guitar and Zack Ellis's animalistic shouts during the bridge to induce chills and goosepimples." -Pretext
