UK four-piece band Wide Eyed Boy present ‘Loving You Is So Easy’ (Acoustic Session)

It’s no surprise that a city as unique and combustive as Liverpool would bring together a band so striking as Wide Eyed Boy. Two parts British, one part German and one part Australian, this four-piece take their adopted home’s heritage seriously – from the internationalist culture of the city, to its inevitable musical lineage.

Oliver Nagy (Vocals), Jonny Ball (Guitars), Kobi Pham (Guitars) and Tom Taylor (Drums) met at McCartney’s LIPA, an institution that is rapidly carving itself out as a hotbed of new musical talent, most recently unearthing artists such as Frances and Dan Croll. The band would find themselves bonding over a shared love of Michael Jackson, Bowie and modern Liverpool cult favourites like The Wombats, The Zutons and Circa Waves before deciding to decamp to Budapest to write new songs. ‘Loving You Is So Easy’ is a snarling, stomping and swirling 3 minutes of bass-heavy, funk-influenced rock n roll, produced by fellow Liverpool resident Rich Turvey (Cabbage, Blossoms, Darlia) – Taylor suggests the track is ‘About how people become selfish when it comes to love’.

The video is a simply and crisply shot insight into the band’s energy and character, an electric and thrilling first glimpse of a band in full form. Echoing their potent, polished sound, this is a swaggering introduction to what’s sure to be a one to watch in the coming months.
