EDITORS’ NOTES

The Winchester, England–based trio Wild Smiles began their career releasing an early collectible 7” single, an EP, and this powerful debut album. Clear influences of Ramones-type power (“Fool for You”), Jesus & Mary Chain–styled ballads (“Everyone’s the Same,” “The Best Four Years”), and their own incisive social commentary (“Never Wanted This”) prove what great influences and a good head on your shoulders can do for a band just getting started. Comprising brothers Chris and Joe Peden and drummer Ben Cook, all capable of expressing their frustrations and ennui, Wild Smiles have the ability to jump the pond and make a big noise in the U.S.
