Pecq explore distance between loved ones on pulsating new single “Closer”

pecq‘s new single, “Closer,” is out now via Upcycled Sounds.

The electro-pop duo pecq, consisting of Hannah Jacobs (Jakes) and Nicholas O’Brien (Nikò), recently revealed their infectious new single, “Closer.” This self-produced and self-written track was recorded at Upcycled Sounds Studio in London, showcasing an introspective yet pulsating characterized by glitchy pitch-shifting. The distinctive tones were extracted from an old modular synth jam that they rediscovered.

“‘Closer is about distance,” Jakes explained. “I’ve been away for most of this year touring. It was so freeing and inspiring to visit places I never thought I’d see, but after a few months I struggled being away from my friends and trying to finish songs with Nikò being in an opposite time zone. I was seeing all these new things but I couldn’t ever communicate them properly so they started to feel ike a weird dream. So Closer was originally about isolation but it was finished on the plane trip home so a different mood crept in – getting closer to your besties, coming home full of fresh things to share.”
