Returning with their second album, Cornish four-piece Wire Daisies combination of traditional singer/songwriting and gutsy rock is a potent mix and a powerful follow up to their debut album, 'Just Another Day'.
A lot has happened since we featured Wire Daisies on the site two years ago. The band had just released their debut album, ‘Just Another Day' which received glowing reviews from sources such as The Independent who described it as an “impressive debut album” and The Daily Mirror who said the band, "bursts into your conscience with melodic rock tunes."
After a Radio 2 playlisting the band soared in iTunes. 'Just Another Day' reached No.1 in the UK alternative iTunes chart - No.7 in iTunes main chart - and No.1 in the French iTunes chart too. Over 10,000 tracks were sold on iTunes alone.
Their second album, 'Wire Daisies' has been recorded with John Cornfield (Oasis, Supergrass and Muse) at the band’s own studio in Cornwall, The Barn, Redruth, the album highlights the eclectic mix of the band's writing.
The album moves from out-and-out rock tracks such as "Wake Up" and "Time Will Tell" to full-blooded Treana Morris' ballads, such as "Never Meant To Hurt You", "Silver Top" and "Leaving So Soon".
Keyboard player, Ol Beach explains: "It's almost like our third album as there has been quite a gap between the two. We have all matured in many ways both musically and otherwise, and this comes across in the sound and song writing."
"This album is more guitar driven than our first, and the songs are more cutting edge. Of course the essence of the Wire Daisies sound is still there in songs like 'Never Meant To Hurt You' and ‘Leaving So Soon’."

The first single to be lifted from the album is ‘Rocket Girl’.
"Rocket Girl' is the most lighthearted on the album, it started with a guitar riff of Ol's and developed from there. It just seemed like fun to write about having a long distance love affair with someone from another planet. It also seems to fall in place with current desire to search for love in the universe by way of the internet", explains Treana.
Queen’s Roger Taylor discovered Treana singing with Alden and Steve at his local pub in Cornwall. Ol then joined the group and the Wire Daisies were formed. They released the album ’Just Another Day’ through the digital imprint Transistor Project and subsequently signed to EMI Angel.
