Esther Hazy are an indie-folk band formed in Montreal featuring members from Australia and Canada and are noted for the dual singer/songwriter partnership of Paul Lucyk and Ed Denton. Following the ending of psyche-blues band Young Dogs in 2017, Ed Denton (vocals, guitar) and Paul Lucyk (vocals, guitar) and Neil Robinson (bass) started Esther Hazy, a more laid back indie rock group drawing inspiration from 90’s alternative rock such as Radiohead and Jeff Buckley. With Oliver Martins on drums, the band released their first EP Live at The Paintshop with accompanying videos of the live session.

Following the move of Oliver Martins to Ottawa in early 2018, Esther Hazy were joined by Walid Moon on drums and began work on their debut LP, a more folk style album in the vein of Father John Misty and Bon Iver, which was produced and recorded by Ed Denton. Walid Moon left the band after 6 months and the band continued to work on the album with a number of other drummers coming in to record and perform with the band. Ed Denton relocated to his hometown Melbourne and in late 2018 the band completed their album entitled The War on Common Sense.
