A few words from the press...
“Get Closer” opens on emerging synths crowned by Hart’s deliciously tender voice. As the measured rhythm enters, the melody takes on shimmering pop colors, undulating on lustrous textures. A muscular breakdown shifts the harmonics to beefy guitars, and then streams into a glowing crescendo highlighted by Hart’s beguiling voice, reminiscent of both Taylor Swift and Katy Perry, only more vibrant and laced with exquisitely charming timbres. “Get Closer” is elegant and potent, full of rich sonic hues, a contagious rhythm, and the nonpareil voice of Jamie Hart, a voice under marvelous lilting control."
