Ever since her debut single Bloom the artist EVER, real name Louise Smith, has been making waves in the scene for her airy and mystical brand of alternative pop. She has music that just makes you feel like you’re floating through the clouds without a care in the world and her latest compelling single Close.
“Close is a playful story about being in a relationship bubble when you’re far from home,” EVER explains. I wanted to capture that sense of losing time when you’re wrapped up in the intensity of a trip, whether it’s sorting out your problems and differences, or enjoying every second of each other’s company. I spent a lot of time getting this track right with kwassa (producer) to have the right energy to match the lyrics, but I feel we’ve struck the perfect balance. ‘Close’ conjures up images in my mind of warm weather, close relationships, deep talks and olive groves!”
There is just such a wonderful charm to EVER’s music, whether it be her ethereal vocal that connects effortlessly with her heartfelt lyrics, the glistening synths that soar throughout the single making the whole piece shimmer with life or her ability to effortlessly weave a story that draws you into the single. She just manages to transport you aways to a whole new world, she offers you an escape from everyday life into a world where everything seems alright.
