Openside punch straight from the heart in their latest emo-pop anthem ‘Character Flaws’.
‘Character Flaws’ is an anthem for the insecure,” says lead singer Possum. "When you're sick of people trying to reassure you that things will get better and you just need to find the fun in wallowing in your self-pity for a while”.
The Auckland quartet has already featured this year in Alternative Press, Line of Best Fit and Billboard’s Pride playlist, and with two NZ Top 40 singles already under their belt, ‘No Going Back’ and ‘I Feel Nothing’, their incisive examinations of identity and relationships are resonating with an ever-growing audience.
Openside have built a following with their own all ages headline shows and opening slots for everyone from Twenty One Pilots and Fall Out Boy to Ellie Goulding.
Led by gender non binary vocalist Possum, with one of the most brilliant young voices in the country, their songs are packaged into polished production from Josh Fountain at Auckland’s Golden Age studio (Lorde) and mixed by Ken Andrews (Paramore).
