Brett Harris - "End of the Rope" (audio) (premiere)

Brett Harris bases his career out of the pop triangle (a.k.a. the Research Triangle in North Carolina) where they still believe in pure pop with sparkling melodies, catchy choruses and jangly guitars. Harris has recently been a touring member of the Big Star Third ensemble, as well as having opened for pop gods the dB’s on the reunion tour. His new album, Up in the Air, releases March 4, 2016 on Hit the Deck Recordings and we've got a great slice of ear candy from that album to sample with "End of the Rope".

Harris tells PopMatters that "End of the Rope" was a song that came together quite quickly. It was written originally for a group Chris Stamey put together called the Fellow Travellers. Our first gig was as the opening act for the Zombies reunion tour. We ended up not using it in favor of some Left Banke covers. I love the way the drums sound on this track. We recorded Dale Baker playing in the kitchen at Arbor Ridge."
