Wide Eyed Boy are a Liverpool-based four piece, who create anthemic indie-rock driven by glistening guitars and bold beats. ‘Wolves’ is their debut offering under their new moniker and serves as a great entry point into the boys’ sonic world.
Hey, tell us a bit about yourself.
Hi thanks for chatting to us. We’re four guys – Ollie, Tom, Jonny and Kobi who met and based ourselves in Liverpool, which has become our adopted home now having been here for nearly 6 years. Tom and Jonny are from the UK where as Kobi is from Australia and Olli is from Germany. We met while we studied and we started hanging out because we liked similar music like Michael Jackson and The Zutons among others. We started playing music together and that progressed into writing our own songs.
Where did the new single come from?
Our new single’s called Wolves and it’s all about dealing with your demons. This was one of the very first songs we recorded together down in Parr Street. It’s one of our darker sounding tracks but its a bit of a weird one as we wrote it on possibly one of the nicest sunny days of the year but that’s just how it works I guess.
What other content is in the pipeline?
We’re still writing all the time and have some new tracks coming out in February as well as spending a lot more time in the studio recording. We’re really looking forward to getting out there over the next few months and playing as many shows as possible.
What’s on the horizon for you?
We’re just looking forward to playing as much as we can. We’ve spent quite a bit of time in Germany recently which you may be able to see a bit of in our photos and video. It’s a great country so hopefully we can get back out there and play some gigs. Everyone has been really supportive in Germany and the UK so we can’t wait to actually get back out in front of some faces.
