The Open Feel - EP2011
The Open Feel is the dreamy pop-rock creation of singer Katie Harris and drummer Tom Brayton. Recently hailed as “one of the best bands to watch for in 2011,” the Los Angeles natives self-released their debut EP in December 2010 – the culmination of a journey that began two years earlier when Katie and Tom, who have been a couple for years, decided to finally start writing music together. “We had no idea what we wanted to write,” explains Katie. “We just started. We knew we wanted to discover who we are musically. We started writing music without worrying about what it was for – we just looked for sounds and songs we gravitated towards with no judgment. The ethereal, atmospheric rock sound that would become The Open Feel finally started to take shape. In their home studio, the two began recording their debut EP in the summer of 2009 playing all the instruments themselves. The EP was mixed by Will Brierre and mastered by Steve Hall.
