Slow Magic’s 'Closer 2 U' EP is out now on Moving Castle. Featuring previously released singles "Somewhere" with SHALLOU featuring Woven In Hiatus, and "Closer 2 U" with MANILA KILLA, and two brand new tracks, this cinematic EP is an ode to the importance of connection.
The EP opens with "Somewhere," co-produced by Shallou and featuring beautiful lyrics of encouragement by Woven In Hiatus. With its glistening synths the lead single brings a sense of comfort. SLOW MAGIC collaborated with Manila Killa on the title track, which combines ghostlike, ambient vocals and captivating kalimba melodies. The first brand new track, "Heartbeat / Helicopter" reimagines the fluttering of a heart with arpeggioed chords at the open that evolve into a groove that bridges the gap between Slow Magic’s past and present backsound. Closing out the EP is "Wild," the perfect nostalgic end scene for a beautiful and cohesive listening experience. The ‘Closer 2 U’ EP creates a narrative journey through its four tracks that is truly pleasing.
“'Closer 2 U’ represents the difficulties of distance and the importance of connection,” said Slow Magic. “I want this EP to encourage and inspire people to reach out to the ones they care about in a time where we are all feeling distant.”
