Barry Humphreys, the newest member of the Urban Antenna team, has taken some time out from his own blossoming music career to give the low-down on Wild Horse. They’re bold, brash and recently signed to the exciting Studio 3 Records:
Wild Horse celebrate their fifth anniversary in April. They’ve been in our sights for some time, so what better time to take a look at what these boys can do. In a nutshell, they’ve been not so quietly paying their dues and honing the craft of what they do. So stop thinking…look and listen! Radio stations around the world are giving them airtime and they’re building on 2016’s debut album “It’s Begun” very, very nicely thank you very much.
My first taste of Wild Horse came when I walked into “The Wall” (ouch !). This deceptive track lulled me into a false sense of security in those first few seconds . It sounded like a Brit-pop moment (maybe Cast?) but the boys had the laugh. I’m quietly minding my own business one minute and then the rug’s pulled out from under me and I’m thinking “MOSH PIT!!!”…and lovin’ it! Henry, Jack and “Barking” Ed having an in-yer-face moment…… well, yes exactly…. that’s what they do! One minute they’re doing subtle, then they’re not – it explodes into something special when you’re least expecting it! So if that’s what you like, you need to take a listen to Wild Horse.
“The Wall” is from the “Timeless Dancing” EP – check it now. It’s a great mix of tracks, including “It’s Only Rejection”, a another favourite that is most definitely louder than the thunder. So listen…… listen…. then have another listen to some of their other hidden gems. Another stand-out track is “Do We Really Know”. It’s a big-big sing-along anthem that conjures images of a big-big crowd giving it loads down at a big-big festival. And you just know that everyone will be loving every moment of it.
Wild Horse aren’t one-trick ponies. They have loads of great songs, with great hooks that will appeal across the generations. Just take “She Comes And Goes”, which is something like Velvet Underground meets the 21st Century. The influences are there but Wild Horse then bring it all together to give us their own unique take on what it’s like to be a front-runner guitar band in 2018.
At the moment they’re writing and recording new songs for their second album, which will be with us on Studio 3 Records before long. But in the meantime check the dates and catch them live…it’s an experience that will most definitely not disappoint. On stage they’re a driving force. They’ll send you home with a smile on your face and some very good news to share with all those other people you know who love great music. The future’s looking very good indeed for Wild Horse!
