From Toronto, comes Closely and their alt-electronic sounds. Closely was formed accidentally when Michael Cranston posted on Kijiji looking for a female singer for a project he was working on & the only response he got was a male guitarist (Joel). Michael was writing slow, dreamy pop and Joel was writing electro jams. After a few practices and a lot of experimenting, they had a mix of our styles in their first song, “Empty”.
“Empty” is written from the perspective of a female friend who has gone in and out of the same relationship with this shitty dude for the past five years. She’s also a dancer; we wanted her for our promo video but she just moved to LA. Instead, we got an amazing dancer from Toronto (Allie Laliberte) to interpret the song (Allie is pictured in the Soundcloud video player below (watch a teaser video of Allie dancing).
