The Open Up and Bleeds

The Open Up and BleedsEarlier this year The Open Up and Bleeds released the singel “Stiv Bators In All of Us”. This was a first step on their way to their debut album which is due soon. And the song just hit me directly in my chest. Straight on, no complications, pure rock’n’roll and raw guitars. Could it get any better?

Other tracks runs off in other directions, even though the core of it all remains the same. Sometimes the synths make their entrance and it becomes more of New Wave with a punkish attitude. There’s a nice raw sound in their music, which is strengthened even more by  Joel Segerstedt’s really cool vocals.

I’m looking forward to their album, and meanwhile we can listen to a bunch of tracks on The Open Up and Bleeds’ Myspace page. The singel, “Stiv Bators In All of Us” together with two bonus tracks, is available for download on Sounds of Zilence’ site.

Here’s the video to “Stiv Bators In All of Us”, and two songs to listen to and download; the singel song and the excellent bonus song “It Takes a Band”:
