High Hazels: Sequin Eyes

10.2.17



Coming from Sheffield, (indie) rock city, this four-piece on the rise since 2012, High Hazels are about to release their new EP, Weak Sun on February 17th though Heist Or Hit.

Off the EP, leading single, Sequin Eyes, shows a lot of the somber post-britpop mellowness and wit of Richard Hawley and the neo-psychedelic jangle pop qualities of The Coral, whom the band supported on live dates during winter 2016.

"The idea of creating something you can sink into and be separate from what's going on around you - even if it's for only a short time; that's what we were after," says James Leesley, High Hazels' guitarist and vocalist. "There's a certain haziness and a heaviness to the songs, both of which may well be the result of one too many long nights, dark winters or maybe the fuzzed guitars and organs."
