The most beautifully strange & ethereal pop song I've heard in many a moon. She's a West Country lass, you know. #BurkinaWessex

I can't get over this song.

En un disco que irradia desesperación amorosa a través de chirridos de sintetizadores rotos, "Closer" contrasta por ser una canción bastante esperanzadora. Es muy difícil borrarse el coro de la mente por dos o tres días.

Closer by @FKAtwigs uses the power of liturgical music to beautifully evoke an unfulfilled desire for intimacy. The verse conjures the feeling of the wide open emptiness of a cathedral space and the sound of a solemn anglican hymn, while the chorus invokes intimacy in the appeal “I want to be closer”. But the wish is not granted, as the song ends with the word “Isolation” decaying in space.
