'Eyes Wide Open' is the fourth single from Scottish quintet Club Beirut.
Released earlier this month, the infectious, upbeat track is driven by swirling guitar riffs and singer Craig McInnes' vocals and band harmonies keep it buoyant.
“Writing the song was actually a beautiful accident,” says McInnes. “I was actually writing a completely different song and at the time I couldn’t finish it. I got quite annoyed at myself and angrily thrashed out three totally random chords and instantly I heard the melody of the chorus.”
