1FTP TV: Wild Smiles

15:34:00 Wayne Flanagan 0 Comments

A little while ago we met up with Southampton trio Wild Smiles amidst their first UK tour. Clearly buoyed by the prospect of a forthcoming release and a lengthy tour (supporting The Rolling Stones at Hyde Park no less) we found them in fine form, performing new tack "Pulling Teeth" - which is not on the upcoming EP but will feature on the bands debut album later this year - as well as giving us a few words about how the band came to be.

This song in particular is a swift, sub two minute burst of fiery guitars and post-punk edged vocals from front man Chris Pedan. It's another element that shows off the bands slightly grittier side, which of course sits pretty with their staple fuzzy Beach Boys themed aesthetic.

The Take Me Away EP is out (both digitally and on limited edition vinyl) on July 8 via Invada Records. Watch the session below and check out the bands upcoming tour dates beneath.
