The Lazy Eyes have shared “The Island”, the last single from their upcoming EP2, out tomorrow July 16th. This follows on from previously released single “Where’s My Brain???” which will also appear on the new EP.

The Australian 4-piece continue their run of psychedelic mind-benders that twist and turn at every corner on the new single. Starting with melancholic lo-fi textures that evoke the feeling of POND’s Man It Feels Like Space Again before descending into an acoustic riptide of phased out guitar lines and spacey vocals. It’s only when the track reaches its instrumental break do you realise the full potential of Lazy Eyes. Kicking back in with Sabbath-worthy fuzzed out guitars and screeching guitar lines the band bring out every psychedelic trope in the book, and it works.

On the track the band said:

“’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. 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.’”

The Babe Rainbow have shared new single “Ready For Tomorrow” along with an accompanying music video shot by band confidante and former bass player Jordan Malane, around the local village watering hole, the Eltham Hotel. This comes after they released “Your Imagination” featuring Jaden in March, both cuts from upcoming album Changing Colours, out May 14th via Eureka Records.

Still in keeping with their breezy sound, Babe Rainbow sound radiantly vibrant on the new single. With a disco infused beat, elements of psych-folk and a melody that shines with eternal sunshine the band’s new album is lining up to be a summer sunny day favourite.

Speaking on the new single lead singer Angus Dowling said:

It’s about 21st-century life, finding relief from the stress of both the future and the past. It is about Persephone running into her mother Demeters comforting arms”
