Only 4 songs have made me actually cry consistently.
Closure is one of those songs.
Fuck you Matt, full thoughts when the album comes out.
These two singles are amazing! We start off with Swim which is just such an amazing song and the way it mixes rock with shoegaze and the production is incredible but I don't have much to say about it tbh. Now we have our second track Closure which just sounds so beautiful with Matt's soothing vocals at the start with the drums and guitar and it just sounds so fucking good. Closure honestly is probs one of the most chill Avenade tracks. I also really like the chill pop and rock combination.
Who's that lovely fella on the opening of 'Swim' huh 👀

I'm so proud of Avenade. I wish I had more to say but what I would've said about these amazing singles, I already have personally to him. These are absolutely stunning pieces of work <3

I still haven't been able to get through the whole of 'Closure' without tearing up though, damn that song is SAD
oh fuck i can't kiss you this time, guess ill murder you in cold blood instead
Pretty sure I'm addicted to Closure by now, such an ethereal dream pop song with hints of shoegaze mixed in, feels like an escape into a blissful environment where it provides, well, Closure from the maddening world and seduces you into comfort. Swim is a great noise rock track with the classic heavy guitar riffs that Avenade provides often, I love the expansion and production of the two tracks with Closure probably being his best song to date that I've heard of, excited for the album!
