‘FLUX’ EP is a colourful array of four songs we made at the tail end of 2019 and the start of 2020. These tunes continue our deeper exploration of dance and house music, projecting positivity through rhythm and song writing. Having started playing live with a full band during the development of this project we have incorporated a lot more live playing in these recordings. With a background in jazz we thrive off the spontaneity of jamming and improvising when developing our music and are constantly trying to find the sweet spot between multiple musical worlds of groove.

Conceived originally in a Coburg studio and developed over lockdown sessions, the album features some of Melbourne's finest musical talent. Allysha Joy (30/70) and JAYDEAN deliver two stunning vocal features on SPEAK IN TRUTH and SOMETHING IN MY DRINK, taking the songs to another level level. Other notable contributions are Paul Bender's (Hiatus Kaiyote) infectious bass-line on UP AND OUT, Matthew Hayes' bass on SPEAK IN TRUTH AND UP AND OUT and Lucky Pereira on additional drums and percussion.
A host of friends along the way also joined in various forms across the 4 tracker and the sense of community with their peers helped them overcome the challenging few months past. Close Counters has created their most well rounded piece of artistry, that further showcases their diverse soundscape at the crossroads of soulful house, funk and broken beat.
