On ‘Songbook’ The Lazy Eyes are showing off, offering the full kaleidoscope of their insane talent. It’s an invitation into a dreamy utopia of their own invention - and you’ll want to stay.

Mojo

Their debut album isn't just about wah-wah guitar, motorik drumming, pixie vocals and the psych moves, though. It's packed with fully formed, memorable songs.

Dork

On ‘Songbook’, The Lazy Eyes deliver a debut album to become completely enamoured by and caught up in.

Uncut

Australian psych-pop upstarts deliver sparkling, squiggly debut.

DIY

The whole thing is tremendously woozy.

NME
Familiar names and genre touchpoints are evident in the Sydney band’s often-thrilling psych-rock debut – but hey, that’s no bad thing.

A blend of laid back and pumped up psychedelic tunes. There are worse vibes to bite off of than Tame Impala (and let's not act like they didn't bite off some of the greats themselves here people).
