The Hazy Eyed Smiles hail from the sunny south coast of England, Portsmouth to be exact. And it must be this sunny disposition that puts the sunshine into the own brand of melodic indie rock. There's no escaping the catchyness of their tunes. Lullaby is a great song, with a brilliantly sharp and toetapping chorus, the same goes for Redeemed.
REDEEMED by The hazy eyed smiles
The craft in ther songs comes from their obvious love of what they do, you can almost hear the enjoyment in the songs, and can then imagine them just getting down and partying on stage.
The band started in 2011 when vocalist Pete Lawrence and drummer Phil Thompson met up through the joinmyband.com website. He liked the melodic indie rock sound of Pete's songs and, like Dr Frankenstein, wanted to give them life. After various comings and goings guitarists and bassists in and out, the current line up and sound was decided. And its a sound, to be honest, I can't get enough of. The EP is great, 4 epic, catchy tunes, great songwriting and just some GREAT music to enjoy!!
If you haven't got the EP yet, firstly WHY?? Secondly, get it, listen to it, enjoy it, and share it with your friends, NOW!!
