The Waking Eyes, “Watch Your Money”

>Moving from their humble beginnings at Winnipeg’s formidable indie label Endearing Records, The Waking Eyes are now out for mainstream success with major label Warner. They’ve also signed a deal with Coalition Entertainment, which oversees some of Canada’s biggest bands like Our Lady Peace, Simple Plan and Finger Eleven. With help from famed producer Arnold Lanni (OLP), the band has left behind their psychedelic musical experimentation and are now focused on penning catchy rock anthems. “Watch your Money” is the perfect lead off single for a band striving for success; it’s made up of a verse-chorus structure but adds enough rock swagger to keep it from sounding too polished. Even though the single offers a same-sounding live and studio version of “Watch Your Money,” this CD is a good introduction to the band’s new direction. (Warner) Rating: 3 Out Of 5 Stars
