The Open – Never Enough

The Open, recently to be found at Art College in Liverpool, have been playing dates about the North and the Midlands, which brought them to the attention of a new label called Loog. The titular track on their debut EP begins in the jangly indie mould before erupting into jagged guitar and piercing solos to great effect. The more psychedelic ‘Music’ and ‘Drown’ show a lighter, but no less dramatic side to the band. These guys could well be one to watch.

The Open are on tour. Catch them at the following venues.
