17 Sep Loving You Is So Easy (Acoustic Version)-Wide Eyed Boy
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“.
Olivers’ voice is from the heavens. His falsetto on the chorus is mesmerizing. This song should be on everyone’s playlist.
As I was making my notes listening to this song those were 3 of the things that stood out to me. Wide Eyed Boy reminds me of some of the greatest groups that came before them such as the Beetles, Aerosmith, The Rolling Stones. A little bluesy, a little Rock n Roll, but definitely a lot of soul, loving this song was so easy.
