Hot off a performance at Splendour in The Grass, Melbourne-based duo Close Counters are heading around Australia to celebrate their forthcoming EP, ‘Refractions’. The EP follows the bands' growing connection with the underground soul/jazz scene in Melbourne following their move from Hobart in 2017.
The four-track release, via Exist Recordings, features singles ’HEY!!!’ and ‘Tip Of My Tongue’ plus ‘Bespoke’ — featuring Sydney vocalist Wallace, and ‘High Noon’ — a deeper groove exploration with a spaghetti western tinge featuring their close-friend and frequent collaborator Elle Shimada on violin.
Close Counters embark on their largest tour ever, spreading their infectious melodies nation-wide this September.
