Heartbreak is like that moment in a horror movie when the killer rips your heart from your chest, literally. An American Idol Season 19 standout, singer-songwriter Hunter Metts depicts a breakup’s aftermath with as much sharp, graphic imagery. “Open” crinkles with acoustic guitar and a ghostly soundscape, and his voice is equal parts broken and feathered. “Why’d you have to leave me open / Cut me up to keep me / Broken now / I’m bleeding out,” he sings.
