The Tazers has its roots stuck in the 70’s while incorporating modern sounds and structures. This trio pack a high-energy performance that captivates their audience with fuzz tones, vocal harmonies and powerful drum rolls.
»In My Mind« is the first single from the forthcoming »Fuzz Machine« EP. Written during the bands 1st European tour in 2022 it ushers in a bold punk rock influence for the band. “It’s a song about global issues, with relation to how your mind receives information & how it’s all in your head at the end of the day” says Jethro Lock, lead singer of the band.
On »Fuzz Machine« the band tackle heavy world issues and »In My Mind« juxtaposes this with a feel good, carefree attitude. “It’s easy to get wrapped up in the news but sometimes you have to take a moment to enjoy yourself.” The Tazers took on a wide array of influences to bolster the pure energy needed to back up the lyrics and balance the message with delivery.
