REVIEW: OPEN ARMS - "MIAMI"
Birmingham's Open Arms new single 'Miami' is a call to the dance floor. Unfortunately we'll have to wait to dance to this groovy tune anywhere else than our bedrooms, but the upbeat nature of the single is reflective of the currently summer-esc weather, a much needed shift of emphasis from those long winter months.
Luring vocal layers and swanky, retro guitar coat the track from start to finish, with arcade style artwork emphasising the image. The only criticism is it feels like it's over too soon. It's exciting times for the chic dance rock quartet, as more releases like this in the build up to summer is sure to go down well, especially once lockdown restrictions are slowly lifted.
Check out their 8-bit video game inspired music video, which makes me want to dig out the GameBoy.
