Winchester band ‘Wild Smiles’ have gone a little Seattle grunge for their new single ‘Never Wanted This’. The track, released on 18th August 2014 on Sunday Best Recordings, is taken from the forthcoming LP ‘Always Tomorrow’ (which is set to land at the end of October).
The band are very much on the up-and-up after a series of impressive support dates earlier this year and are now set for slots at ‘Bestival’ and ‘Psychedelia Weekend’. There seems to be a genuine momentum with the Hampshire trio as radio airplay, by some of its notable royalty (Zane Lowe, John Kennedy Huw Stephens and Steve Lamacq), now seems to be the norm.

After a decent showing at the Camden Barfly back in May (see the full review here) it’s obvious the group have a well crafted catalogue of music for their forthcoming LP. It certainly looks as though the new single ‘Never Wanted This’ could be catalyst to ensure the bands star rises a little higher before then.
Further news on the LP release (including a full review) will follow in the next few weeks.
