Geelong delinquents The Living Eyes will unleash a new, 10-track slab of stompers, ‘Living Large’, via Agitated Records.
The Living Eyes are Billy Gardner (who, not only runs the esteemed Geelong record label Antifade, but also plays in Ausmuteants and Wet Blankets amongst others…) on vocals and guitar, Mitch Campleman on guitar / vocals, bassist Dayle Herbert and drummer Nicholas Hill. Their second full-length, “Living Large,” was recorded in a day-and-a-half by (Straight Arrows’ front man) Owen Penglis in his (new) Sydney hideout, Goliath Professional Recording Studio. The tapes were then driven back down the Hume highway and finished off in a couple of West Geelong bedrooms before being sent off to Australia’s mixing master, Mikey Young.
Taking their cues from the likes of The Easybeats, The Hoodoo Gurus, The Saints and The Hard Ons, The Living Eyes stand true to the vitriolic punk brash and sharp garage crunch of their s/t debut (2013, Antifade Records) whilst crafting some DAMN SWEET power-pop hooks.
The Living Eyes are ‘Living Large’ with feral wallaby beat to make you pick up your feet and a shake you just can’t shake!
