As Leeds-based trio The Big Wheel gear up to release their self-produced debut EP1, we’re premiering the first single, “Foolish.” The band consists of Ollie Deans, Joe Collinson, Tom Orrell, and together they create energetic indie rock with a slight twang and surprising twists. “Foolish” not only offers catchy melodies, but a relatable story, “I’ve been foolish for the best part of my life / candle’s not burning too bright,” the frontman sings. For a song about internal conflict and insecurity though, its roaring guitar riffs and clashing drums seem to tell a slightly different story.
The band has already supported the likes of Flyte, Katie Von Schleicher, and more, and additionally have made an appearance at this year’s Live At Leeds and recorded a live session for BBC Introducing West Yorkshire. EP1 is set to arrive this Friday, August 3rd, but you can listen to the new single right here.
