CHOON OF THE DAY: "CLOSER" - Klyne
Escaping musical categorisations, incorporating elements from various genres, the Dutch duo Klyne successfully redefine sonic eclecticism. The follow-up single to their infectious electronic soul moment "Paralyzed" is a "Hot Chip-esque" mélange of modern funk, neo soul, electronica and synth pop, only that it's sung with much better vocals... Undoubtedly among the most promising newcomers in 2015. London label Aesop coupled "Closer" along with Klyne's debut "Paralyzed" in an exclusive 12" single which you can pre-order now HERE.
The band expand on the "Closer":
"Closer is about someone going to the extreme in order to reach their lifelong desire, and at the same time coping with the fear that their fate might already be decided. One of life's greater beauties is when a person breaks free of these psychological limitations. At first it looks like naive stubbornness, and the feelings of doubt never entirely go away. But then all of a sudden you're halfway there, and that’s when you realize it is possible to actually achieve things that are beyond your “fate". That’s the simple story we wanted to convey with this song - that and a ridiculous topline."
And if you missed out on the excellent b-side from "Paralyzed" - "Entropy" here it is for those who like myself are eager to hear more from Klyne:
