The Wodan Boys Bring All The Energy In Their Newest Single, “Bells”

A rock track with lots of energy and catchy hooks best describes Wodan Boy’s newest single, “Bells.” Reminiscent of bands like The Strokes, Wodan Boys mixes alternative rock and indie pop with a post-punk vocal performance. Their track “Bells” is full of pulsing energy that will get anyone up and rocking. Yet, the song is about someone trying to escape the voices in their head. 

Listen to “Bells” below:

“Bells” starts with crashing percussion, punctuated by heavy guitar chords, until the vocals come in with a screaming entrance. It’s the perfect way to bring the energy and set up the rest of the song. Besides a great instrumental and vocal production, “Bells” has lyrics that perfectly capture the track’s message. 

Lyrically, Wodan Boys describe trying to escape the noisy thoughts stuck in one’s head. The song opens with, “I’m stuck in here/ Someone else in my head/ The feeling that I’m running/ But I’m always stuck in bed.” This idea of a cacophony of voices in someone’s head is also captured through lines such as, “I’m looking around/But I seem to be alone,” and “I got hell in my head.”

The Wodan Boys are a Dutch band who released their first EP, Wodan Boys I, in 2021 and just recently dropped their second EP this year. Along with having two EPs under their belt, the band has spent the past year touring around the Netherlands. The band describes themselves as,

“High energy loudmouth rock music, that’s basically what it’s about. Balancing on a thin line between chaotic, violent guitars and cheeky melodic hooks.”
