XYLØ – Get Closer
California based and longtime Going Solo’s favorite art-pop duo XYLØ returned with a song that could easily be labeled as their most emotional offering to date. It’s called Get Closer and this time, alongside the pristine production that marks the song’s relentless pace and Paige’s haunting vocals, it comes together with an official video that brings to life on a visual level the heartbreaking lyrics.
Speaking on the track to The Fader, XYLØ’s lead singer Paige Duddy explains: “To be young in 2016 comes with many distractions. We live in a chaotic, clickbait, top ten list-instant gratification generation. Sometimes we need to look up from the small screens and take a look at ourself, and the people who are closest to us. In the video our director, Gianennio, captured this mood all through the lighting. The neon lights, strobes, lazers, fog, all represent those distractions in a failing relationship. Caroline (who plays my girlfriend) tied this all together through her emotional performance,unique style and grace.”
