“We could be together, maybe we´re forever, is that what you want, to settle down? I could get a job, I could wear a suit, a monkey in a suit, to make some money. We could buy a house and a double bed. Is that what you want, to live another life and settle down? I never wanted this… ”
Raw sound meets meaningful lyrics and it triggers a bit the memory about Nirvana. “Never wanted this” is the first single release – 18th August – of Wild Smiles´debut album “Always Tomorrow” that will be out 27th of October. The brothers Chris and Joe Peden and drummer Ben Cook sing about “growing up, getting out, the struggles of debt-heavy, priced-out youth.”Never Wanted This” and the other single on the EP called “While I’m Gone” are bold rejections of the mundane sort of life we’re expected to settle for. “It’s our perception of life,” says Ben. “Not the voice of a generation but just how we three see it.”
