CLOSE campaign—

• CLOSE - Beam Me Up (Single).
• CLOSE - Getting Closer (Album).
• CLOSE - My Way (Single).
It's been a real journey, and a long time since Will Saul contacted us about a new musical project that he wanted us to create a visual identity for. What started off as anonymous music project called CLOSE, Will sent us a few tracks, then eventually the album titled 'Getting Closer'. Will eventually 'outed' himself as the man behind the project with an amazing line-up of collaborators including Fink, Scuba, Joe Dukie & Appleblim.
The project finally got signed to the brilliant !K7 Records label and so far we have produced the artwork for the singles Beam Me Up, My Way and the album Getting Closer with another as yet titled single.
It's been really hard to sit on the album which we've had at various stages of completion for over a year and a half! It's an amazing album, and one we hope will get the recognition it deserves!

The CLOSE visual identity can be see on our site here.
A review of the CLOSE Fabric live show can be found on our blog here.
Beam Me Up (feat. Charlene Soraia and Scuba) is out now, read a review here.
The album 'Getting Closer' is out on the 3rd of June.
My Way (feat. Joe Dukie) is out on the 10th of June, read a review/stream the track here.
Will also recently recorded a Radio 1 Essential Mix which can be downloaded here.
