Fletcher “Open Arms”

fletcher - open arms

Sure, comparisons to The Arctic Monkeys, The Strokes and early Kings of Leon are bound to bubble up when immersed in “Open Arms”, the latest single from newbies Fletcher, but as hard as it may be to overlook those influences, it’s just as difficult denying how much the London/ Chicago three-piece (brothers Oscar and Harvey Baker and Tom Fry) aim straight for and successfully pierce the body’s indie rock pleasure center zones with this one.

Working a jangly effervescence through its bobbing bass line and guitars that flash and wriggle with hints of Afro-pop, and led by a howling vocal that begs to be sung along to, “Open Arms” is four minutes and forty eight seconds of summery guitar rock perfection.
