The Living Eyes
Geelong foursome The Living Eyes kick in a sophomore effort, following on the elastic crack of their eponymous 2013 debut with a new record that never loses step. Living Large expands on the band's spring wound punk, bashing through ten tracks that buzz with the tradition of Aussie punk from The Saints to Radio Birdman and while the record spit shines their sound a bit, cleaning up the grit that snuck between the teeth of their earlier work, it never erases the sneer constantly plastered on their lips. The secret weapon in the band's arsenal is Billy Gardner's nasal croon, whiplash tough and switchblade sharp; he adds a road burned charm to the band's faded leather punch. Just as brittle and brilliant as their last record, they remain a band to keep an eye on.
