Video: Lewis Watson – “Wide Eyes” (Local Natives Cover)

Lewis Watson

“Lewis Watson knows how to make us feel an aching in our hearts with his quiet and gorgeously harmonized version of Local Natives’ ‘Wide Eyes.’” Refinery29

“This elegant song about mistrust and regret is a doozy, achingly lonely but levelheaded, and Mr. Watson sings it with a mature voice and a mildly mawkish earnestness.”  The New York Times’ Jon Caramanica

“There’s no doubt: Lewis Watson really is out of this world.” NYLON

” …brings to mind the Avett Brothers, Fleet Foxes or his fellow Brits, Mumford & Sons. PAPER

British singer-songwriter sensation Lewis Watson recently released his long-awaited debut full-length album, The Morning, which rocketed to #3 on the iTunes Singer/Songwriter chart! In support of the new record, he’ll take to the road on a full North American tour this fall. Having quickly become renowned for his effortlessly charismatic stage presence & a knack for truly engaging his enamoured audience, the tour will take he & his delightful live show to Los Angeles, San Francisco, Philadelphia, Boston, the Bowery Ballroom in NYC & more!

In celebration of the upcoming tour, Lewis has unveiled a beautifully shot live video of his unique cover of Local Natives’ “Wide Eyes.”

In 2012, Lewis self-released his debut It’s Got Four Sad Songs On It BTW EP after establishing a devoted online fanbase. It topped the iTunes Singer/Songwriter chart on the first day of release, outselling the likes of Adele, Madonna & Ed Sheeran in the process, and landed the then 19-year-old singer-songwriter a deal with Warner Bros. UK.

In addition to critical acclaim, all five of his EPs to date have hit the Top 10 at iTunes, each building upon the sales of the previous release. Meanwhile, his online following is phenomenal: 6.3 million YouTube plays, 100k+ ‘likes’ on Facebook, 5 million streams at Spotify & 75k+ followers on Twitter.

“A zeitgeisty comination of vocal-indie-world-pop (a la Grizzly Bear and Local Natives), old-school indie pop, casual experimentation, and the druggy-haze of dream-pop.” – Metromix
