Discovery: Wildeyes

From Nashville, Tennesse, Wildeyes bring raw, soulful country to our ears.

By Graeme Smith

The rawness in new track Empty Love comes from the fact that the recording comes from a rehearsal of the song, the first ever performance of the song. It works to great effect, there’s a carefree, authentic feeling to the arrangement and the emotion is real. But what really stands out is the concrete lyrics. In its most lucid moment, the protagonists “empty love” is compared to an old man serving food, too poor to retire.

Wildeyes are a trio for anyone who loves country with substance. Check out Empty Love below.
