The Living Eyes are a super rad band from Geelong, who, if you can’t tell from the Bee Gees reference, are unduly committed to their throwbacks (never a bad thing). Their tracks wink at nostalgia. while being too cheekily raucous to get weighed down by it. These guys are definitely worth getting to know.
On April 1st (no foolin’), the band are releasing their debut self-titled LP recorded by Mikey Young, and they’re doing a pretty extensive tour around the East Coast to launch it (full dates below).
The two tracks below are worth your ears: ‘Slave Labour’ – a fast and cranky working-dudes anthem and ‘Up And At Them’; a fleshed-out, scuzzy workout but with the same defiant stomping ‘tude.
