One part German, one part Australian and two parts British, but formed and based in Liverpool. Wide Eyed Boy met at Paul McCartney’s Liverpool Institue For Performing Arts [LIPA]. 2018 was spent grabbing international attention. The band scored a top-20 Germany airplay single, plus also played Europe-wide shows played in support of The Libertines, Feeder, The Rifles and The Riptide Movement.
Taken from their ‘Sun Again’ EP, they today unveil a new single ‘See The Light’ (produced by Rich Turvey – Blossoms, Clean Cut Kid, Cabbage). A brooding slice of indierock, full of deep melodies and earnest vocals, you can check out the video for the track below:
Talking about the song, Tom Taylor from the band explains ‘See the light is about getting to the stage where you have almost given up on everything. You want and need to be alone and are in the state of constantly rethinking what you have said and done. It’s one of our most serious songs, we normally try to find a bit of positivity or resolution when we write a more downbeat song but with See The Light that doesn’t happen’.
Wide Eyed Boy will be appearing live at the following venues in March
March 3rd – Camden Assembly, London March 28th – Night People, Manchester
