" 'Soulacoasta' is the title from our first album - a 12-track whirlwind ride through Soul with no safety brakes. The project developed during our nine months Europe trip, in which we dug up a number of rare groove records whilst crate digging. The end result is a dance-floor worthy mixtape of organic house/boogie/disco and more. This song has been great fun to perform live and we have often enlisted our own live horns section to help recreate the energy in the chorus."

Emerging from the depths of Tasmania, Allan McConnell and Finn Rees are known for their electrifying fusion of electronic, hip-hop & jazz styles, their signature dense synths and driving basslines.

Since their recent beginning, Close Counters have supported the likes of Peking Duk, What So Not , Tkay Maidza, Tall Black Guy and Shaggy. Their first single ‘Fluctuate’ was named ‘Track of the Day’ on international music blog Indie Shuffle, and the track’s music video was aired on ABC TV’s RAGE program. Australian website Pilerats described their debut EP as “diverse as it is interesting as it is just plain groovy”, and Triple J host Veronica Milson dubbed their single ‘Picture Me’ a “straight up party tune from the word go!”. In 2018, Close Counters released their first full length project called SOULACOASTA.
