Biography

With their four-part male/female harmonies and multi-instrumental sound, including cello, piano and glockenspiel, this six-piece band from Reading have been favourably compared to Arcade Fire and Fleetwood Mac.

Since 2004 the band have performed at a diverse range of venues: anything from a local music shop to Nottingham's Royal Concert Hall. Recent supports with My Latest Novel, Semi-Finalists, HEM and Pure Reason Revolution have gained Wire Jesus critical acclaim for their mesmerizing vocal harmonies, frenetic live performances and thought provoking lyrics.

In 2006 the band released their debut Double A side single 'The Intruder (Make It Better)/Another Day' on Josaka Music, produced by Adam Whittaker (New Rhodes/The Rakes).

Another Day has subsequently been featured on the hip Oxford Label - Shifty Disco download club, showing Wire Jesus to be one of the most original and unique bands emerging today.

Lyrics

We're So Tired

Written By: Nicole Perkins

Drifting off to sleep, her thoughts are messed up messed up
People that she's seen, right there in her bed
Clinging on to day, she needs to rest up rest up
She can't take much more, it's easy to see

She's so tired, she's so tired, she's so tired
She's so tired, she's so tired, she's so tired

When will we all wake up
Free from all our make-up
Smiles behind our eyes and
No more easy lies?

Looking at their plans, he's told he messed up messed up
Noone else to blame, it's all on his head
A soldier with a tear, can never rest up rest up
He can't take much more, it's easy to see

He's so tired, he's so tired, he's so tired
He's so tired, he's so tired, he's so tired

When will we all wake up
Free from all our make-up
Smiles behind our eyes and
No more easy lies?

Watching back the lives, that were messed up messed up
No more can be done, it's hard to believe
The absence of a plan, can mess the rest up rest up
We can't take much more, it's easy to see

We're so tired, we're so tired, we're so tired
We're so tired, we're so tired, we're so tired

When will we all wake up
Free from all our make-up
Understand what's real and
Have the strength to feel
Wealth won't make us richer
See the bigger picture
Smiles behind our eyes and
No more easy lies?
