Lazystars are a Vegas–based indie rock band with a distinct sound characterized by emotionally–charged, piano–driven melodies, thematic guitar parts, an in-the-pocket rhythm section and ambiance to boot.

Though the band just cut its second E.P., Light of Day, after only a 14 month caper, its members are hardly new to the Vegas music scene. Dave Hawkins led local act Psychic Radio on a three–year run; guitarist Dave Meeks was a member of veteran Vegas band Big Bad Zero; and Brian Havens was the drummer for The Killers, and with bassist Joshua Jackson things only became complete.

Though the initial unification of the group was well due to heartbreak, The Lazystars' songs and sentiments exude a theme of Love through their esoteric experiences.

"We can only hope, that our hopes, will change into a knowing that our music...just changed your life. It changed ours."
