Bio

Close Counters is the sounds of Tasmanian neighbours Finn Rees (22) and Allan McConnell (24).

Since forming in 2013 the pair have toured around Australia, performing at clubs and events including Falls Festival, Party in The Paddock and Dark Mofo. The boys have supported the likes of The Kite String Tangle, The Aston Shuffle, Marina Abramović, and Shaggy.

Close Counters’ signature sound mixes dense synth harmonies with dance and hip hop beats in a style reminiscent of Disclosure and Flying Lotus. Australian website Pilerats described their debut EP as “diverse as it is interesting as it is just plain groovy”, and triple j host Maggie Collins “would twerk” to their single ‘Can’t Complain’.

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. It is available for digital download at https://closecounters.bandcamp.com/

There's a little salsa rhythm buried under this but let me tell you, Kaytra would be proud to call this an original.
