Closely was formed accidentally. Michael posted on Kijiji looking for a female singer for a project he was working on & the only response he got was a male guitarist (me). Michael was writing slow, dreamy pop and I was writing electro jams. After a few practices and a lot of experimenting, we had this mix of our styles in our first song, “Empty”.
“Empty” is written from the perspective of a friend who has gone in and out of the same relationship with this shitty dude for the last few years. She’s a dancer and 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 her own way. Watch the video here.
