Dayglow returns with new single 'Close To You'

Following on from the release of his wildly popular viral hit ‘Can I Call You Tonight?’ last year, which garnered more than 170 million streams online, 21-year-old Sloan Struble aka Dayglow is back to deliver a brand new single.

The new track 'Close To You' sees him continue that fresh and vibrant indie-pop sound he is getting a reputation for, and will form part of his forthcoming debut album, which arrives in the near future.

Speaking about the new offering, he said, “There is just a certain danceable yet melancholy feeling about 80’s pop duets that I wanted to channel into. “Close to You” was intended to be performed as a duet, but ended up essentially being a duet with myself (which makes sense in the context of the lyrics).

"The song itself is about the tension between two people at a party that never said hello. It’s about the excitement and perfect fantasy you play in your head prior to seeing that person, the mediocre and nervous reality of the actual moment you see them, and the let down that always comes afterwards it not being what had always and only been living in your head. I envision the song being played inside someone's brain— kind of like the movie “Inside Out”- after they are leaving a party, thinking about what they wish would have happened.

"But in reality, they are actually just singing to and about themselves.”
