Having recently supported The Rifles on their UK tour, Wide Eyed Boy today release their new single Wolves. The single’s release coincided with the band changing their name from Whitecliff to Wide Eyed Boy.
Wide Eyed Boy met while studying at Paul McCartney’s internationally renowned institute for performing arts (LIPA) whose luminaries include The Wombats, Sandi Thom and more recently Dan Croll. They name The 1975, The Strokes, and Arctic Monkeys as some of their influences which I can definitely hear.
Recruiting fellow Liverpool resident Rich Turvey (Cabbage, Blossoms, Darlia) they have just completed their eponymously titled EP which is due later this year.
[Wolves] is about letting people in that are bad for you. A song about self sabotage.
