A band from Chattanooga, TN.

Open was founded by original members Nathaniel Sirmans and Garrison Heinfeldt in 2016. In the beginning, the band took influence from groups like The Garden, in regards to their bass-focused songwriting approach. In 2021 drummer and songwriter, Zachary Sparks joined Open. Through the years of 2016-2021, the band broadened their range of musical influence drawing from bands like The Cure, Nirvana, and Fugazi, as well as, taking creative ideas from Led Zeppelin, Wu-Tang Clan, and Hunter S. Thompson. Currently, the band is finding solid ground with a liminal indie-punk sound they refer to as Shoegazi. A compilation of hand-picked fan-favorite songs from their earliest releases can be listened to on their 2021 mixtape Early Days. As of now, the band pushes the boundaries of genre definitions through their innovative and eclectic songwriting and energetic live performances.
