Wide-Eyed, the debut EP from NeverMind, delivers a quintet of diverse, vibrant and evocative tunes that make it my first must-listen and must-own musical collection of 2014.
Born of electronica Wide-Eyed soars beyond the confines of any single musical genre due to the disparate musical tastes and multi-instrumental skills of band members Megan, Coco, Rio and Lexi. With lyrics ranging from the passionate to the heartbreaking, 2 Lines, Drinking Alone, Love You Know, Get Wrong and Heaven construct a soundtrack for love, relationships and life.
With airplay on BBC Radio 6, and 2 Lines as Radio 1’s Track of the Week for the week beginning 10 February 2014, NeverMind are justifiably garnering attention, accolades and acclaim. And the recently released video for 2 Lines is a beautifully crafted short film that lifts an already beguiling song to a new level.
Despite being a nascent band NeverMind are on a well-deserved ascendance thanks to superbly polished production values, an incredibly professional attitude and a surfeit of musical skill. With luck a full album will appear in short order but in the meantime enjoy Wide-Eyed and keep your eye on four exceptionally talented ladies who are already making a substantial impact in the world of music.
