Count Counsellor returns with atmospheric ‘Open Eyes’
Following on from the Huw Stephens supported single Friends, London-via-Adelaide artist Count Counsellor is back with a brand new track from his forthcoming & The Friday Friends EP, Open Eyes.

Open Eyes is a beautiful atmospheric indie/pop cut! Loving its infectious guitar line, an unexpected Boyz II Men sample comprising the track’s hook, and hazy vocals that fuse the vibe of his previous work with the euphoric stylings of his last single.

Combining a perfect mixture of pop, dance music and serene, blissed out moments, Henry Counsell, better known as Count Counsellor, pinpoints his wide range of inspirations to the cultural “melting pot” in which he grew up. Sneaking into his brother’s DJ sets when he was younger, his exposure to the sounds of Burial, Fela Kuti, The Streets, Paul Simon and Sade continue to make an imprint on his compositions today. He says,
There is no doubt that you are hugely influenced by the people you listen to. So listening to those artists have hugely influenced how I play and write, whether it is clear in the music or not.

To celebrate the release of the forthcoming ‘& The Friday Friends EP’, Count Counsellor will play a very special headline show at London’s Camden Assembly on September 5th.
