A relatively new project from Eoin O’Callaghan (aka Best Boy Grip), Wake America has returned with ‘Everything I want’ and it’s sounding big. Deep, atmospheric synths, jagged guitar sounds paired with the emotional strains of O’Callaghan’s vocals, ‘Everything I Want’ comes bursting forth upon its urgent rhythm; suggestive of the insistency with which O’Callaghan’s career trajectory has soared over the past year.
Early support by BBC 6 Music for his Best Boy Grip guise has allowed O’Callaghan some confidence it seems, and it’s paying dividends in 2016 – Tom Robinson and Steve Lamacq both championing his music has ensured some exciting momentum and we’re looking forward to what’s next. Considering too that a collaboration with Ryan Vail appeared on Vail’s stunning debut LP, there’s a versatility to O’Callaghan’s music that should only become more compelling.
‘Everything I Want’ is out on May 6th via Amelia Records.
