The video premiered with Wonderland who described the track and visuals as, “Exuding pure love while candy hues and neon lights fill the screen, the upbeat nature of the song is only furthered… Euphoric in nature and boasting a captivating production that promises to transport listeners to sandy shores, the track is an ode to summer. And, with Alice’s powerhouse vocals driving forward the matter-of-fact lyrics penned by the artist with love in mind, the song’s infectiously positive nature is solidified.”
‘Open Up’ has been written by Alice and produced with Troy Miller (Emeli Sandé, Jamie Cullum) with additional production by John Foyle (Years & Years, Maisie Peters). It’s a straightforward but extremely well crafted love song. Alice’s rich vocals and tastefully layered harmonies ride among tropical tinged synths and a high-flying euphoric chorus ready to set summer alight. The video, which features Alice, captures her soaring vocals with their message of love displayed on vibrant colourful heart-shaped sweets.
The track has been released with great support from Spotify who have featured the song on a number of editorial playlists including the global New Pop Revolution playlist. The track has picked up spins on Amazing Radio UK and US, as well as on National Dutch Radio NPO Radio 2 who are featuring Alice as their European Artist Of The Week.
Regarding the single Alice says, “I wanted to write an uplifting love song, both lyrically and musically… something to get people moving and in a good mood. I kept the lyrics quite simple, like I wish love was! ‘Open Up’ is about finding someone who feels like home, someone you can truly be yourself around. A safe haven, after all the broken hearts and disappointments.”
‘Open Up’ is the third single from Alice Pisano in 2021 and follows the release of the tender ballad ‘Seventeen’ and the upbeat pop track ‘Crush’.
