Rock trio Fletcher was born from the basement experiments of English brothers Oscar and Harvey Baker and their stateside friend Tom Fry. Cobbling together their own distinct homage to British bands like The Who and The Rolling Stones, Fletcher has also drawn comparisons to contemporary bands like The Arctic Monkeys and The Strokes, though without all the unnecessary pretense. Their upcoming EP Open Arms is set to hit on April 9th and will be available directly through the band, as they are releasing it themselves. Our first taste of the record comes in the form of title track “Open Arms,” a particularly melodic bit of 70’s-influenced UK rock that might have found a good home on a latter era Who or Stones record. The song’s extraordinarily tight construction and propulsive rhythm section is all the more impressive given that the band was only formed in early 2012.
Beats Per Minute is pleased to premiere the new song “Open Arms” from Fletcher’s upcoming EP of the same name.
