Wide Eyed Boy

Two parts British, one part German, and one part Australian the quartet take their adopted hometown’s heritage seriously, from the internationalist culture of the city, to its inevitable musical lineage.

Vocalist Oliver Nagy’s , Jonny Ball (guitars), Kobi Pham (guitars) and Tom Taylor (drums) met at McCartney’s Liverpool Institute For Performing Arts, an institution that is carving itself out as a hotbed of new talent. The band bonded over a shared love of Michael Jackson, David Bowie and recent Liverpool alumni The Wombats, The Zutons and Circa Waves.

Recruiting fellow Liverpool resident Rich Turvey (Cabbage, Blossoms, Darlia) on production duties they recently decamped to Budapest to write songs for their eponymously titled debut EP – due later this year. Featuring their first single ‘Wolves’, Nagy suggests “…it is about letting people in that are bad for you.”
