Open Arms BSF HEADLINERS
Bearwood Street Festival 9th June The Otherwood Stage 17:00
From the BSF promoters:
We love Open Arms..we were initially sceptical but they blew us away after last years shuffle. Perfect musicianship and if you could bottle the energy you would probably have enough power to solve the energy crisis for a bit. Nowt wrong with a bit of indie pop! Never met any other band who bought there own shopping trolley with them to flog merch from and who were so sure of themselves they had there own photographer at this early stage! Yet no arrogance just polite and utterly charming!
"I just love these guys, they encapsulate pop so well and they do it in their own way" (BBC Introducing)
OPEN ARMS ARE A FOUR PIECE UPCOMING INDIE POP BAND FROM BIRMINGHAM WHO HAVE REALLY STARTED TO CAUSE A STIR. COMPRISED OF BEN FARMER, SAM BARRATT, DREW PETERS AND TOM ANDREWS. THE BAND HAVE ALREADY BEGUN TO SPUR AN INTEREST IN AUDIENCES OF THE INDIE/POP SCENE. SINCE THEIR FORMATION EARLY SEPTEMBER 2015, OPEN ARMS HAVE BEEN ACCUMULATING A “DIE HARD” FAN BASE OF WHICH NUMBERS HAVE BEEN GROWING RAPIDLY ACROSS BOTH PERFORMANCES AND SOCIAL MEDIA.
TAKING A VIBRANT MIXTURE OF UPBEAT INDIE POP, RASPY GUITARS AND RICH RHYTHM, MANY HAVE DESCRIBED OPEN ARMS AS THE PROMISING NEW SOUND OF POP. FROM RECEIVING VIVACIOUS PRAISE DIRECT FROM ESTEEMED MEMBERS OF THE MUSIC INDUSTRY, TO THE VOICES OF AUDIENCES ENCAPSULATED WITH ENGAGING LYRICS AND MELODIES WHO CANNOT RESIST THE URGE TO DANCE, NOTHING CAN RESTRAIN THE INEVITABLE RISE TO THE TOP FOR THIS BAND.
