Wired to Follow is an experimental soundscape outfit hailing from Merseyside. Comprising two main artists Stephen Johnston and Barry Fearns who have worked together on musical projects for a number of years, the outfit which is more aptly described as a musical project than a band has also collaborated with a number of other talented musicians.

Wired to Follow was launched in 2012 and takes its inspiration from exciting developments in technology. They released their first EP Everything In Colour in 2013, which was well-received with one review stating: “This is what Sonic Youth could have sounded like after being locked up in a room with Brian Eno.” This was followed by the second release Instances, which was described as “mood music for the galactically inclined.” Science fiction inspired the third EP, entitled 90Y, which took its name from an episode of The Twilight Zone. Constantly writing, recording music and experimenting with sounds, Wired to Follow recently brought out a short release of three songs, entitled Short Code named after one of the first ever high level computer programming languages. They are currently working on a their debut album.

It is mood music for the galactically inclined; the sound of a loaded cargo ship cruising towards Earth, and home.


this collection of futuristic sound waves will caress so deeply you’ll feel it in your bones.


Seemingly brimming with ideas and the ability to pull them off, this EP promises many more interesting things to come from Wired to Follow.
