Dizzy are excited to release their new single ‘Close’. The track is the latest release from the band’s forthcoming, self-titled album, which will be released on August 18 on Communion Records.
Dizzy’s new album candidly explores the anxieties of being an artist in 2023, but ‘Close’ takes a moment to reflect on the comradery of being in a tight-knit band and the respite of friendship. The mid-tempo track channels the calm at the end of a chaotic day, with singer Katie Munshaw’s softly affecting vocals shining over simple, emotive chords, conveying Dizzy’s trademark warmth.
Speaking about the track, Katie says: “Back in 2019 we were on tour in Eau Claire, Wisconsin when the wheel bearing on our van went kaputz on American thanksgiving. It was a hard day but the only thing I can really remember about it is laughing in the mechanic’s waiting room and then finding our way back to a hotel with a bottle of green room whiskey. We’ve been through a lot as a band but we always manage to reconnect on itchy hotel beds between episodes of Family Guy. ‘Close’ is about a lot of things but mainly it’s about the comfort Mack, Charlie and Alex bring me.”
Of the video, Katie says: “The video is a meditation on the saying ‘get back on the horse’ and shows me and an older version of myself repeating the same pattern over and over again, expecting a different result.”
