R3HAB and Andy Grammer are no strangers to collaboration. Their newest single, “Close To You,” marks the third they’ve released together—this one a catchy track driven by vocals that will have you singing along every time you hear it.
“Close To You” blends both artists’ styles, which is hard to pull off. The song opens with Andy’s vocals and guitar, showcasing his songwriting and musical prowess. As more textures and drums come in, the track leans on the intertwining of acoustic and electronic elements.
Its apex features a thumping bassline and driving drums, with a pristine vocal hook from Andy. As “Close To You” fades into its latter half, a bass guitar pushes the music forward into a second chorus. The slow house groove pairs perfectly with the tropical melodies and guitars, reminiscent of a time we all hope to return to soon.
