Brooklyn dream pop trio Lazyeyes performs at The Other Side in Wilkes-Barre on April 24
From a press release:
Wilkes-Barre arts and entertainment collective Get Cryptic has announced another show exclusively through NEPA Scene – Brooklyn shoegaze band Lazyeyes will perform at The Other Side in Wilkes-Barre on Friday, April 24.
Lazyeyes is a three-piece dream pop group formed in the summer of 2012. The band released a self-titled EP in January 2013 and was heralded by The Deli Magazine as the “Best Psych/Shoegaze band in New York.”
After a sold-out record release show at the legendary (and now closed) Williamsburg venue Glasslands, the Lazyeyes EP garnered widespread acclaim from underground music bloggers. Best New Bands described their 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, and various other FM stations worldwide, and they performed alongside Oberhofer, Crocodiles, Nothing, Sunflower Bean, and Roomrunner. The group most recently released an EP titled “New Year” in January of 2015, with a new single, “Mindseye,” on the way. “New Year” is streaming below:
Local openers for the concert at The Other Side (119 S. Main St., Wilkes-Barre), presented by Get Cryptic, are Half Dollar and Pity Party. The show starts at 9 p.m., and tickets are $5.
