Their first single ‘Fluctuate’ was named Track of the Day on international music blog Indie Shuffle, and the track’s music video was aired on ABC TV’s RAGE program. Australian website Pilerats described their debut EP as “diverse as it is interesting as it is just plain groovy”, and Triple J host Veronica Milson dubbed their single ‘Picture Me’ a “straight up party tune from the word go!”.
To start off 2018, Close Counters released their first full-length project called SOULACOASTA, a 12-track whirlwind ride through Soul with no safety brakes. The project developed during Close Counters nine month Europe trip, in which they dug up a number of rare groove records whilst crate digging. The end result is a dance-floor worthy mixtape of organic house/boogie/disco and more.
