New Feature JUST LISTEN: OpenEars Music was founded originally with one true goal in mind, as a place of discovery to help expose talented new artists. In reality, we are mostly a group of photographers who love to go see live music, and of course, shoot live music. We wish we had the time and resources to write about all the rad new music being sent our way everyday. Let’s be honest though, if you are one of those with really open ears, open to new artists, and open to something potentially unique like us, then our words only go so far. You listen for yourself and make your own decisions on the music you like. JUST LISTEN is a place for us to present our latest finds that we are digging. No words needed, just listen…..
JUST LISTEN: Underwater Boys “Everyone You Know”
Who: Underwater Boys
Song: “Everyone You Know”
Appears On: The debut 7″ single “Everyone You Know” from the band also features the B-side “Bye & Bye”, released via the influential imprint Cannibal Hymns in early October.
Current Location: Brighton, UK
Info: Underwater Boys is the very fine work of Tom & Nick Klar – two brothers who make dreamy, fuzzy pop music in Brighton. Drawing influence from Cocteau Twins, Beach House, The Cure and Tame Impala, their sound is characterised by Tom’s sweet, otherworldly falsetto, and multi-instrumentalist Nick’s woozy, ethereal soundscapes.
Comments: A joyful sound about battling the darkest parts of yourself, it’s impossible not to immediately fall in love with the sprawling synths and transcendental falsetto from Underwater Boys – a song that from the opening note, scoops you up into the UK’s band’s world with a grip that you never want to end. While this single is just the first taste of Underwater Boys, they’ve already left no doubt that they are on top of our most anticipated future releases, but for now, we will just leave these two songs on constant repeat.
Upcoming Live Dates:
11/23 @ The Green Door Store, Brighton, UK
