“Adaptation,” the newest single from Brooklyn-based trio Lazyeyes, wastes no time getting off the ground. A fast-paced, garage-tinged guitar riff draws the listener in, propelling you through chorus and verse. It is both urgent and reassuringly familiar. “It was initially inspired by our adaptable and often transformative nature as humans, but also as artists and musicians,” explains guitarist and singer Jason Abrishami of the track. “There’s always a desire to break free of our restraints and push the boundaries,” he continues. “This song is a bit of a nod to that, trying new things and never being too complacent.”
Abrishami first formed Lazyeyes alongside Paul Volpe on bass and Jeremy Sampson on drums in 2012. The band released its eponymous first EP in January of 2013, and is currently putting the final touches on a second EP, New Year. Next week Abrishami, Volpe, and Sampson will play two shows in New York as part of CMJ.
LAZYEYES WILL APPEAR AT THE FLATT ON TUESDAY, OCTOBER 21 AS PART OF FREE WILLIAMSBURG CMJ, AND AT MATCHLESS ON FRIDAY, OCTOBER 24, AS PART OF SUPERCRUSH STUDIOS CMJ. FOR MORE ON THE BAND, VISIT ITS FACEBOOK PAGE.
