"Yes, we have covered this band before, and with good reason. Some of us have been fans since the self-titled debut EP back in 2011. And yes, we will continue to bang the drum for a band like The Open Feel because, well after listening to Katie Harris sing, we’d give her our puppy if she asked for it. She and Tom Brayton almost sound like the anti-grunge movement of the 90s, but own the idea instead of trying to rent it from the past." - Victor Alfieri, Wordkrapht
Wake This Dream - Official Lyric Video - The Open Feel
Rockcurrent Week 45 Top Tunes
"When the Open Feel hit our eardrums with their self-titled EP in 2011, it was a tidal wave of ’90s nostalgia thanks to their combination of shoegaze and roaring rock. However, Katie Harris and Tom Brayton don’t just flash back or wear their influences, they’ve revitalized it with dream-pop in the cleanest manner. The duo has never been a band to embellish their tunes with unnecessary frills; Harris provides the sultry vocal melodies while Brayton keeps new songs such as “”Wake This Dream” driving with his percussion and heavy bass lines. The fundamentals are there, and each element has grown stronger with every single. When all your friends and their mothers start blasting the Open Feel on their favorite alternative station soon, don’t say we didn’t tell you so." -by
Our new single ”Wake This Dream” is finally out! We are so excited and have been counting down the days to get to share this song with you. Thank you all so much for the incredible support!
Huge thanks to our stellar mixer Will Brierre who, to us, is like the third member of the band! And thanks to one of our favorite artists You Killed Me First for the mixed-media ‘single art’ piece! Finally, thank you to Steve Hall at Future Disc for being a master of the master.
Here it is…
Thanks for listening and supporting!
WE LOVE YOU
Stay Loud, xxxxxxx
