New Zealand’s Connan Mockasin and England’s Sam Dust (who records as LA Priest and is the former frontman of Late of the Pier) have teamed up to form Soft Hair. The duo are releasing a self-titled debut this Friday (October 28) via Domino imprint Weird World and previously shared the album’s first two singles, “Lying Has to Stop” and “In Love.” Now just a few days before the album’s release the duo have shared funky album opener “Relaxed Lizard.” Listen below.

Mockasin and Dust met in 2009 when Mockasin toured with Late of the Pier and the duo has been working on the album for five years in between their other projects. Dust released his debut LA Priest album, Inji, last year via Domino. Mockasin’s last album, Caramel, came out in 2013 via Mexican Summer.
