"I was in a band called Death Midget. I mean you can't get any more naive to be in a band for 5 years called THAT, that just made cassettes and stickers and then I feel like now I'm kind of back in a kind of fun, sticker, cassette...I feel I came full-circle with it in a weird way in terms of the excitement and energy that I had when I was younger making it.” - Chris Slusarenko of Eyelids

here's more dirt!:
“scholars of sunshine pop” - Keith Cameron, Mojo
"A whirlwind of tangled acoustic and electric guitars that gets stuck in your head and continues to spin long after the tune is over" – NPR Heavy Rotation
Eyelids really had existed long before the band even started. In various previous groupings the band members had the great pleasure of creating music for some of the most legendary indie songwriters ever. From Robert Pollard (Guided By Voices) to Elliott Smith; from Colin Meloy to Stephen Malkmus (Pavement/Jicks). But just a few years ago these longtime friends started to channel their teenage Paisley Underground obsessions and love of New Zealand / Flying Nun guitar buzz into their own music which they described as “sweet melodies and bummer vibes.”
Recently Eyelids released a self-titled EP (produced by Peter Buck of R.E.M.), toured with the legendary Charlatans UK (who also decided to release Eyelids' debut album "854" in the UK), put out a hand silkscreened Record Store Day 7" and directed several music videos including one animated by Jack Cusamano (from the insane Adult Swim show Rick & Morty) and another which featured professional wrestlers singing their songs in earnest. The band does like to have a good time.
This limited edition 7" is just a look see to the next full length LP that they are working on. Buoyant, loud, pretty and haunting... It's all here (to hear)... All exclusive recordings for this release including a 3rd bonus track to bring home the wobble. Dig in!!!
EYELIDS ARE THRILLED TO BE PLAYING WITH THE LEGENDS THAT ARE FLAMIN' GROOVIES AT MISSISSIPPI STUDIOS ON FRIDAY JUNE 24TH. IT'S A BENEFIT FOR KISN AND ALL BANDS WILL BE PLAYING COVERS THAT NIGHT. WE HAVE 5 WORKED UP INCLUDING SOME GUESTS JOINING US AS WE CRUNCH THROUGH THEM!!!
YOU CAN PURCHASE TICKETS BY CLICKING HERE
LOOKING FORWARD TO SHARING SOME EXCITING SUMMER DATES AS WELL AS THE RELEASE OUR UPCOMING 7" SLOW IT GOES!!! STAY TUNED!!!
Available for the first time in the U.S. our debut album "854" UK edition CD or LP--lovingly put out by Tim Burgess of The Charlatans UK~!!!
Hopefully some of you were able to catch Eyelids when we did our U.S. tour with The Charlatans UK. We were able to get a small run of the our debut album as it was released by Tim Burgess over in the UK. Different artwork, different name, same delicious sounds...
