EMBRZ, that Irish songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist whose been steadily enrapturing us with his music and remixes for more than three long years, has revealed a pop-leaning, emotive stirring, and effervescent sparkling new gem named Close 2 U featuring Australian newcomer Harvie on guest vocals. The celestial aria flitters gracefully and weightlessly in much the same way Odesza and Petit Biscuit tracks do. And it’s going to be a transcendental treat to sway to live, if I get to catch EMBRZ when he performs at Ultra Music’s SXSW showcase later this week. Close 2 U follows on Jack Casey’s much lauded Progress EP from last year. 

Jack details the track: “When I wrote ‘Close 2 U’, I really wanted to channel that old EMBRZ sound. Some of my first ever releases, ‘Slow Down’ & “Make Your Way’ are still really special to me, and I wanted to try capture the same feelings I had when I wrote those songs. I feel like I’m in a really happy place writing-wise. It’s important to challenge yourself and try out other styles, but I always find myself going back to writing emotional and nostalgic music. The music I first started out on.” Stream Close 2 U and EMBRZ impressive catalog of music via Spotify, here.
