CXLOE – “Close” visualizer
“‘Close’ was written during a time in my life when I was continuously putting myself out there but getting nothing in return. The song is about the struggle of wanting to commit to something or someone but they’re not ready to make the jump for you. From my perspective, I was being flown around the world to meet with record labels in which I gave my all but was never able to close the deal and have the commitment reciprocated.
This song reflects on learning about your worth, values, and what you are willing to compromise for another person. This sentiment is best captured in the chorus lyric, ‘I keep dealing up my soul cash in a feeling, made these doors go flying open. I just wanna close them.’ It can be utterly disappointing to not be able to close the deal, but when you do, the pain is all worth it.” – CXLOE explained
‘Close’ contains a relatable narrative, ear-pleasing vocals, and intricate wordplay. The likable tune possesses lush instrumentation flavored with electro and alternative-pop elements. Furthermore, “Close” follows hot on the heels of CXLOE’s previously released singles, entitled, “Soft Rock” and “Cry & Drive.”
2021 has been a hard year for musicians thanks to Covid-19. But this year has seen CXLOE play sold-out headline shows in Sydney and Melbourne, a launch show at Phoenix Gallery, play Big Pineapple Festival, and support The Veronicas.
In 2020, CXLOE released her critically acclaimed debut EP, “Heavy Part I,” which features the fan-favorite singles – 12 Steps, One and Lonely, Heavy, and Swing. Also, 2020 saw her wowing audiences nationally on a headline tour. To date, CXLOE has amassed over 50 million streams and landed on over 50 global New Music Fridays on Spotify.
