Music Reviews / /
The duo that officially marked summer 2016 with their sexy tune 'Closer' is getting ready to release new EP. In the meanwhile check out the new video for the summer hit and our review.
The Chainsmokers recently announced that they are going to release their second EP in November. The release will come via Columbia Records and Sony Music Entertainment, and will have 2 brand new songs along with the hits 'Don't let me down' and 'Closer', and the most recent buzz single 'All we know' featuring vocals from the amazing Phoebe Ryan.
'Closer' marked the summer of 2016, and managed to top the Billboard 100 and UK Top 40 just with a lyric video release. Feeling that they owed their loyal fans an extra treat, the electronic duo premiered the official video for the song.
The sexy jam, which the duo label as 'not a love song', was written by Andrew Taggart, Shaun Frank and Frederic Kennett. The song is mid tempo, R&B ballad with electronic elements, atmospheric vibe and incredibly sexy flavor.
Hey, I was doing just fine before I met you
I drink too much and that's an issue
But I'm OK
Hey, you tell your friends it was nice to meet them
But I hope I never see them
I know it breaks your heart
Moved to the city in a broke-down car
And four years, no calls
Now you're looking pretty in a hotel bar
And I, I, I, I, I can't stop
No, I, I, I, I, I can't stop
So, baby, pull me closer
In the back seat of your Rover
That I know you can't afford
Bite that tattoo on your shoulder
Pull the sheets right off the corner
Of that mattress that you stole
From your roommate back in Boulder
We ain't ever getting older..."
Lyrically, the song is actually about bumping into your ex and getting some sexy time out of it. The message, however is that, what was once broker, can not be fixed.
The official music video comes almost 3 months after the single premiere. Directed by Dano Cerny, it succeeds in the effort to capture the song's emotions and vibe into 4 min visual. Adam from The Chainsmokers snatches some sexy time with Halsey, and while they look incredibly good together, with a series of flashbacks we see how their relationship broke off.
Wrapping it up, the video is really cool, the song is beyond addictive, so make sure to check it out.
