Fresh off her signing to Dot Dash Recordings & Remote Control Records in Australia and Majestic Casual in Europe, Sydney-based future soul artist NGAIIRE delivers the first taste of her forthcoming album in ‘Closer’, a stirring electronically-influenced offering that leaves you with shivers down your spine with her divine vocals on offer.
Co-written with Japanese Wallpaper and Jack Grace, ‘Closer’ utilises a strengthened instrumentation base of deepened drums and electronic bass that provides plenty of grit and power across the mix whilst allowing plenty of room for the vocals to take centre stage. When NGAIIRE takes flight off the podium, her soulfully-driven melodies shine incredibly bright and command your attention with their captivating flow.
“This is my sweaty 80’s summer love song. It’s the ‘I want you, I’ll drop everything including these panties for you whenever you’re near so don’t come here, WAIT come here – NO DON’T’ song. It really is about how I observed love, sex and dating as a girl growing up in Papua New Guinea – that desperation of lust and love that grows out of your secret fantasies for another and that silent after thought of whether it’s wise to fall that hard because it might be short lived.” – NGAIIRE
