CD Review: Open Air Stereo Reverts Back To "Primates" For Debut Release

Rockers, Open Air Stereo released their debut album, “Primates” back in May through Goomba Music. The band received worldwide attention when lead singer Chase Johnson became one of the main characters on MTV’s show “Laguna Beach.” After stalled sessions and being dropped from their major label debut, the band took a three year hiatus before reconvening to create this album.

The album kicks off with the heavy drumming of “The Right” before heading into the straight-up rock groove of “Love Is Blind.” The album’s lead single “Stuck On You” carries a built-for-radio, pop-rock sound similar to the early days of Maroon 5. The band returns to their hard rock roots on “Where Do We Go” and “Hung Over You,” before again getting into the mainstream pop-rock of “What You Want.” The album finishes up with the dirty guitar-driven “Living Proof” and the edgier sound of “Your Way Is My Way.”

Open Air Stereo are currently on tour with Candlbox. To find out more about the new album, “Primate” and for a complete list of tour dates, please visit
