You Opened Up My Heart is the new single from The Slow Readers Club taken from their third album Build A Tower due out on May 4th. Already a live favourite after being previewed on their tour last Winter, it's the song that's set to catapult them further into the conscience of the record-buying public.
The album version of the track (featured in the You Tube video above) takes many strands from the band's previous album Cavalcade, but at the same time feels like a huge step up, a band confident in their sound and with belief in their ability to reach a massive audience. Lyrically it's one of Aaron Starkie's finest pieces to date, still introspective, but with lines like "Believe enough to lose control, where there's love there's always hope" it's a song that you can imagine thousands and thousands of people singing back to him.
