Wide Eyed Boy premiere the video for their acoustic version of ‘Wolves’ right here on Liverpool Noise.
With a city like Liverpool, renowned for it’s multicultural heritage, it should be no surprise that it is home to a band as unique as Wide Eyed Boy made up of two parts British, one part German, and one part Australian.
Oliver Nagy (Vocals), Jonny Ball (Guitars), Kobi Pham (Guitars) and Tom Taylor (Drums) met at LIPA and bonded over a shared love of music, with influences including Michael Jackson, David Bowie and the Liverpool greats of The Wombats, The Zutons and Circa Waves.
The guys recently decamped to Budapest to write new songs for their debut EP and recruiting producer and fellow Liverpool resident Rich Turvey (Cabbage, Blossoms, Darlia) into the recording process.
The acoustic version of ‘Wolves’ strips back the track and the stunning vocals of Oliver Hagy really shine through. The original track, which you can listen to here is an atmospheric indie rock anthem, however the new acoustic version brings a haunting edge and forces listeners to sit up and pay attention to the lyrics.
They’ve been making waves supporting bands like Feeder, Faers and King No-One and will be playing at Camden Rocks Festival in the summer so it’s fair to say the guys are destined for a big year with more new music promised soon.
We will have more exciting news from Wide Eyed Boy coming very soon!
