Introducing our BOTW: Close

You have to admire Will Saul. Over the last decade or so, the Somerset native has brought us two of the most esteemed imprints in electronic music in the guise of Simple and Aus Music, he’s been the musical delivery man for seminal releases from the likes of Actress, Scuba and Joy Orbison, and yet he still manages to find the time to write and record what’s surely to be one of the records of the summer in Getting Closer.

His first album under his new moniker, Close, it feels like a fresh beginning for the lauded producer; a chance for him to reinvent himself with none of the musical stigma attached to it being an eponymous project. Here, he’s dabbling in what are essentially pop songs: lush, silky pop songs that is, laced through with threads of minimal techno and smokey, after hours soul. It’s yet another jewel in Saul’s increasingly crowded crown. Below, you can check out Getting Closer‘s second single, ‘My Way‘, which features a guest spot from Joe Dukie of Fat Freddy’s Drop:
