Lazyeyes is a three-piece garage / shoegaze / dreampop band from Brooklyn, NY that was formed in the summer of 2012 by guitarist and vocalist Jason Abrishami (The Twees), Paul Volpe (Triple Cobra) on bass, and Jeremy Sampson (Eastern Hollows) on drums. 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.”
Lazyeyes have recently signed to Flower Booking and have just been added to the lineup of Official Showcasing Artists at this years SXSW Music Festival in Austin, TX. They will soon be releasing more new music and announcing their first North American Tour run.
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.

‘Zuli’ is a songwriter / multi-instrumentalist from Long Island, NY. Combining his love for well orchestrated pop songs and lo-fi influence, Zuli’s songs dwell in a sweet spot between the hallucinogenic and the neatly buttoned. An unhinged 70’s inspired psychedelia tethered to earth by fine pop sensibilities and structure.
Sprawling fall-out from left-brained strangers, “Disturbing,” subverts conventions with creepy sleepers caked in sinister chemistry and tangy bangers teasing art-rock stalkers; beat-heavy noir dancing to cuckoo boogaloo and low-down velvet-viper funk. Slinky tinker-toy techno-pop greased in sleazy freedoms, smirking anarchist’s glee and quick-change artist audacity, Invisible Familiar’s con-man genre tumbles and thunders with ominous comments, slippery sighs and sideshow charm.
