Montgomery – Close To Being Apart

If you like your synth-pop dreamy, make sure you check Close To Being Apart by Montgomery. The Melbourne-based singer, songwriter and producer (real name: Phoebe Parkinson) describes her tunes as โ€˜pop music to cry toโ€™. Anyway, this is a beautifully lush track with shimmering vocals. Danceable on the one hand, but melancholic on the other.

In fact, this apparent contradiction is the core of the song. Montgomery explains: “I wrote Close To Being Apart last year after moving house. There’s a mix of emotion when you’re packing up and moving on to a new place that holds no memories. I found myself reminiscing, holding on to sentiment, while another part of me was desperate to start a new chapter. Close To Being Apart acknowledges that tension of wanting to move forward or change direction, while still clinging to old memories. Even those I’d proudly thought I’d already let go of.”

This single is the first taste from Montgomeryโ€™s next EP, which is due out later in the year.
