The Waking Eyes - Video Sound
Written by Nicholas Jennings    PDF Print E-mail

The Waking Eyes - Video SoundTwo-thirds of this prairie-rock trio hail from Steinbach, Manitoba and enjoyed acclaim in Britain as The Pets—which prompted one member to ask: “How did a band from Steinbach get into The Sunday Times?” Judging by the sound of the group, now reincarnated as Winnipeg’s Waking Eyes, it all comes down its synthesis of Beatlesque melodies and Stooges-style riffs. Songs like the garage raver “Move On” and the neo-psychedelia of “On a Train” are appealingly tuneful Canrock nuggets. A band to watch.
