Milton Keynes four-piece Naked Next Door are made up of Euan Emerton (Vocals/Guitar),
Tommy Woodward (Lead Guitars), Corin Schencks (Bass) and Callum Petchey (Drums). Following on from their incendiary BBC Introducing Live session and breakthrough track “I Can’t See Straight” last year, the rising indie talents drop their first release following signing with London based indie Honest Records.
The first taster from their upcoming debut EP (produced by Joe Garrett and mixed by Grammy-nominated engineer Paul Norris at Metropolis Recording Studios), this is a sparky, cathartic and candid first release from a band that unapologetically recount everyday stories of frustration, bad decisions and wild lost nights.
Now pairing the audio with a black and white acoustic video, the latest release acts as the perfect, personalised insight into the way the guys work and bounce off each other when in performance mode.
With a remarkable talent for storytelling combined with a natural ear for a hook, Naked Next Door feel like a band about to do serious damage this year.
Speaking on the track, Euan states: “The song’s about a number of things: the feeling that you spend each day stressing out and trying to do the right thing all of the time, but this is about how you feel when you forget it all and stop caring about whether it’s the right decision and just do something because sometimes it gets too much – it’s that deep breath out at the end of the worst day.”
With co-signs already from the BBC and the early indie tastemakers alike, get ready to hear a lot more from Naked Next Door in 2019.
