Two trips around the world, a relationship break-up, barred from your adopted country……and still you manage to get your first EP released. Commitment, passion, doggedness, stubborn stupidity – choose your own adjectives, but this is what it took for Sydney based indie pop-rock act, Wires to get their debut record done and dusted.
"This is our first EP, but it's been a long time in the making." says Ed McGuire, the Scottish singer and main songwriter of the band. "Since I left Scotland five years ago, I've been a bit of a travelling wilbury, writing songs on the hop and performing them on the acoustic guitar. But when I finally settled in Sydney, and realised that the songs I was writing really suited a band rather than a singer-songwriter, I decided to seek out some like-minded souls."
And so, in early 2012, Wires was born.
"At first it was a bit of a moniker, a play on my surname, but once I realised that writing songs, in fact any kind of art, is about making connections, in terms of experiences and emotions, it began to take on more of a conceptual meaning. Wires is about the things that connect us all, even if sometimes they are invisible."
Although now based in Sydney, the strong melodies and power pop influences of Scottish indie guitar bands such as The Fratellis, The View, Frightened Rabbit and Travis show through in Eds song-writing.
And the EP itself:
"I wrote Short Term Pleasures after coming to terms with how addicted I was to seeking out instant gratification. However, I don't think I'm alone in this; the essence of our consumerist society is geared towards that, so it's not really our fault. But when you're so tuned in to seeking out the next 'hit', you lose sight of the longer term goals and things that, whilst they might take longer and more work to achieve, are ultimately more satisfying. If I had to sum it up, I'd say it's about sex vs love, a one night stand versus a truly loving relationship."
