Premiere: Wake America – Government Said


When he’s not making truly wonderful music as Best Boy Grip, Derry singer-songwriter Eoin O’Callaghan is channeling another side to his broad alt-pop wizardry as Wake America. Taking from Silly Boy – his forthcoming debut EP in this guise – we’re very pleased to premiere ‘Government Said’, a track that falls very, very comfortably the impossibly infectious bracket. One listen and you’ll be hooked – mark our words.

Written, produced, mixed and mastered by O’Callaghan, watch the video for the new single (featuring footage from Cosmos: War of The Planets) below.

You can catch Wake America in Lavery’s Belfast on Tuesday, December 15 with Guillem Balague

is the editor of The Thin Air. Talk to him about Philip Glass and/or follow him on Twitter @brianconey.
