Australian psych outfit The Lazy Eyes have shared a new single, ‘The Island’, alongside an accompanying video. It’s the final preview from their second release, EP2, which is out tomorrow (July 16). Check it out below.
“’The Island’ was written about a place where none of The Lazy Eyes band members have been in real life, and acts as the sequel to ‘The Seaside’ from EP1,” the band explained in a press statement. “It’s an imaginary island that is a sort of utopia but is also filled with mystery. The writing process and a demo recording took place in Harvey’s childhood bedroom, he recalls, ‘all I remember was recording a terrible demo on GarageBand and really struggling to sing it because I had a cold that day. It’s interesting to hear the demo these days because you can hear the parts before they were refined as a result of playing the song over and over live.’”
