Fire In Her Eyes – “Wouldn’t Have Guessed It”


With great songwriting on display, “Wouldn’t Have Guessed It” is a bursting psych-friendly rocker from Fire In Her Eyes. The London-based all-girl trio show an evident ’60s and ’70s psych rock and pop infatuation, with a modern re-imagining emphasizing creatively evolving song structures, as is the case here throughout the track’s nearly five minutes. The chorus enchants, with a string-laden effervescence accompanying a striking vocal lead, letting out a title-referencing refrain that soars. A suave guitar solo converges with hooky vocals around 04:25, reminding fondly of the act Tennis. “Wouldn’t Have Guessed It” is a fully satiating gem from Fire In Her Eyes, touting captivating vocal harmonies and memorable hooks.

“Wouldn’t Have Guessed It” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of November 2020’ Spotify playlist.

The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Psychedelic Rock.
