Closely are a Toronto-based indie band.
Michael was originally looking for a female singer for a project he was working on, but the only response he received was from a male guitarist named Joel. Michael was writing slow, dreamy pop and Joel was writing electro jams. After a few practices and a lot of experimenting, the result was ‘Empty’.
Joel says of 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 her own way.”
