Leeds outfit Dead Naked Hippies return with a punchy new blinder in ‘Eyes Wide’, released last Friday.
Produced by Grammy and BRIT Award-nominated Tom Dalgety (Pixies, Royal Blood), and the follow-up to ‘Young Male Rage’, the track is a coming-of-age anthem.

‘Eyes Wide’ opens with stark guitar stabs before frontwoman Lucy Jowett takes centre stage with a bold, confident & striking vocal. The track builds into a huge chorus, culminating in the hook “With eyes wide, I am not blind.” It’s a huge statement of intent from the Leeds based band, showing they are ready to take arms.

“‘Eyes Wide’ is for the outsiders,” explains frontwoman Lucy Jowett, “the pieces that don’t quite fit the puzzle, those growing up & growing wiser but not by societal norms or expectation, instead blossoming in their own beautiful way. For those making their own shapes, decisions, perspectives, words and waves in their own time and seeing the world through their own eyes. 26 years in and I’m not the person the child or the teenage me thought I would be, or should be by expectation. No shame. ‘Eyes Wide’ is a celebration of it.”
