Bio

Close Counters is the future beat sounds of Tasmanian-based neighbours Finn Rees (18) and Allan McConnell (20).

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’.
