Introducing: Raving Wild


Raving Wild are a two piece  indie band from Aylesbury, England. They describe themselves as ‘an acoustic indie duet with folk influences and some rock thrown into the mix’. So its  real pick and mix of music. The band is made up by Graham Iddon (rhythm guitar/vocals) and Dave Cocking (lead guitar/percussion). They met in school and have been playing music together ever since.  And now for the music.

I have selected two songs to feature. Both of which contain the bands unique musical style. The first of which is the Bands namesake ‘Raving Wild’. Raving Wild, the song that is, is an upbeat tune with some serious undertones. Some of the bands influences, mainly The Shins and Mumford and Sons, can be clearly heard in the song, but with a very unique twist. The song is catchy, with a great tune and some interesting lyrics. I think that says it all, so have a listen.

The second song by the guys is Ignition.This song is darker, well in comparison to the first song anyway. Ignition, in my opinion, is the bands signature song. It has a unique sound and has instantly recognisable qualities.Raving Wild are currently working on their debut album. If these two songs are anything to go by it will be highly successful. Very few bands manage to imprint their style onto their music so early on in recording stages.

    1. Most welcome – give credit where it is due. I like your sound. Looking forward to more.


  4. Keelan, this is brilliant – love to ‘discover’ new bands without having to put in any effort of my own. You’re right – they have already established their unique sound and stamp to their music – let’s hope they keep it. It would be sad if they get picked up by some major label and become mainstream under pressure to conform.


  5. This wAs an interesting review 🙂


    1. thats good to hear 🙂


  6. Great mix of sounds. I like acoustic. Without sounding ridiculous, I like not having to strain to understand the lyrics which so often get buried in the music.


    1. That is one of the things that I picked up on also. Its great that every word is so clear and audible 🙂


  7. Cheers Keelan, we’re happy that you’re liking us and enjoying the music. Thanks for the great review! We really appreciate it! Quick question, do you mind if we quote you for some of our media advertising?
