Lazy Legs: Tremor EP

It seems like the recent relocation from Chicago to Portland was not the only major change having direct bearing on shoegaze/dreampop band, Lazy Legs. On their newly released, Tremor EP, it becomes evident that the band attempts a stylistic shift toward a more melancholic taste, while sounding heavier and more intricate than before. The outcome, although it sticks to its shoegaze roots, it indulges in many different styles and results to something conversant and high-reaching.

The band's own Michael Tenzer explains more about the shift: "The EP originally started off as a skeleton for our second album, which we were going to call Crawler, but our physical move from Chicago to Portland, along with the evolution of our creative process, changed our plans. Half the material we had written felt too disconnected and lacking. The other half still felt good and up to our standards. We ultimately decided to cherry pick the best songs and turn them into an EP."

Citing classic indie, slowcore and shoegaze acts among the main influences for their new material, such as Codeine, Low, My Bloody Valentine, Smashing Pumpkins and Starflyer 59, together with more contemporary greats like Ringo Deathstarr,and No Joy, the ever-evolving Lazy Legs have just come up with what feels like their most accomplished and best executed set of songs so far. Founded on themes that deal with anxiety and its many different forms, Tremor manages to remain mesmeric, inviting and sound completely antithetical to the discomfort that it pulls influence from and describes.
