Known more for the string of cricket royalty it’s produced, music isn't the first thing that comes to mind when talking about the historic South England town of Winchester but, there’s a first for everything right?! Step in three-piece Wild Smiles who have been turning heads since they dropped their addictive debut single ‘Fool for You’ a few weeks back on Rob da Bank’s Sunday Best Recordings. Expertly melding their fuzzy take on West Coast Surf Pop and Beach Boys-esque vocal harmonies, the trio look set to put Winchester on the musical map with their debut LP - which is expected to drop later this year.
