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 (Joel). 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”.
About the track
“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
