Track Of The Day :: Lazyeyes - Echoes
Words: Ellie Ward
A bit of shoegaze, a bit o' psych mixed with a sprinkle of post-punk - the perfect heady cocktail conjured up by Brooklyn's Lazyeyes on new single 'Echoes'.
This is actually the title track of their debut which will be out on June 15 through Egghunt Records, so it looks like there's more to come in the same vein on this which is described as "delving into a space where the loss of innocence becomes galvanized amidst the growing times of young adulthood. The energy of adaptation stirs the spirit, yet the weight of confrontation buckles the knees and leaves social truths and real peace just outside your grasp."
But for now, be content with the rushing melodies, Ride-shaped guitars and soaring vocals in a song that lyrically belies its inspiration.
“I wrote this song about the experience that I endured when I went through losing my grandmother, who suffered from a long battle with Alzheimer’s disease," reveals the band's Jason Abrishami. "Sadly enough, I was the person who first took notice that her memory was deteriorating and had to watch as my entire extended family got hit with sadness and depression as her health declined throughout 6 years. It’s a song about losing a sense of yourself, giving in to the sadness and getting wrapped up with life’s ups and downs.”
