Colin Close EP

Hailing from Liverpool, Colin Close is a dreamy acoustic duo who released their debut EP at the end of September. Evidently, neither member is named Colin.* Their label, Fruit Soup, sent me an e-mail in late October with Colin Close’s self-titled EP attached. Thank goodness I downloaded it.

Rob Hamer and Jan Staunton’s music feels less like an intricately constructed score and more like the natural weaving together of two guitars. Think of a more lyrically sparse and abstract Simon and Garfunkel and you’ll be on the right track.
