If you’re feeling glum because it’s Sunday and the weekend’s just about over, drop this next one on and you’ll feel a lot better. Montreal based DJs and producers Paris & Simo offer up a bounty of feel good future pop vibes on their new single Keep Me Close, which features fellow Canadian and singer songwriter Sara Diamond on vocal duty. The sprightly flickering, rosy blithe future bass on Keep Me Close is keeps me dancing. The track is Paris & Simo’s the second release off 3LAU’s not for profit label, BLUME, which he founded last year with the mission to unite music listeners worldwide around philanthropic causes and initiatives. BLUME’s current objective is to raise $30K for ACLU, and the profits from Paris & Simo’s Keep Me Close as swell as Kap Slap’s Gone will work towards reaching that goal. Snag the tune and help the worthy cause, here. Alternate stream of Keep Me Close via Soundcloud can be found below.

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.
