Brightly, a band from Melbourne, Australia, was formed by Charlie Gleason, who was a programmer and computer science dropout. He started the folk and electronic act in his bedroom before it flourished into a three piece. This week, Brightly released their new record, Oh, Infinity. The lead single is a moving and intimate folk song named Keep Me Close. There’s a haunting quality to the song despite its tender tendencies, a virtue that I tend to love about pastoral gems like this one. Brightly’s new album is a coming of age tale, and Keep Me Close certainly captures those melancholic lovelorn moments of our youth. Stream Oh, Infinity in full, here.
