Tommy Ashby Shares New Single ‘Closer’

Scottish singer and songwriter Tommy Ashby has just shared his brand new single Closer, a dreamy and intimate piece of folk-infused, indie-electronic music out now via Dance To The Radio. 
I am absolutely in LOVE with this song and how it is packed with so much raw, honest emotion, instantly getting me in a relaxed and introspective state of mind. Produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Sam Okell (Celeste, Graham Coxon, The Beatles) and featuring Lydia Clowes, Closer is an intimate piece of music about being with someone special that can make anywhere feel like home because you're with them. This beautiful message is flawlessly conveyed through Tommy Ashby's ethereal-like vocals and Lydia Clowes' haunting harmonies that together create an intimate, eerie atmosphere akin to that of an off-kilter lullaby, beautiful, alluring and fragile. 
Closer is the first single to be released from Tommy’s debut album Lamplighter set for release in March 2023. Accompanying the release, Tommy Ashby has shared its beautiful, alluring music video, shot and directed by videographer Andy Little in the epic and desolate setting of Iceland. The landscape perfectly reflects the ethereal and otherworldly sound of the music. Check it out below!



Tommy said about Closer, 
I wrote this song after coming back from a tour in the US. It was weird because although I was in one of the most beautiful places I’d ever seen, driving up Big Sur with big skies and sunsets, I was counting the days to get home. These places have so much more meaning when there is someone you want to share them with. When you are with that person they can make anywhere feel like home. I wanted to create an intimate atmosphere for this song. In London, we lived next to a park, and I can remember warm summer nights and the smell of the trees and the earth. That timeless feeling you can get when are with someone and it feels like you are the only two people awake in the world.
