EARLY PRESS ON CLOSEGOOD:

"Budding...genre-bending" - ROLLING STONE

"Closegood has already found a compelling new voice in underground R&B. Their trans-ness does inform their writing, as does their experience with race, religion and outsider statuses of all kinds. But the music is so warm and generous that their search for meaning feels welcoming to anyone who wants to come along." - LOS ANGELES TIMES

"undeniable unique....the duo delivers a sound we don't hear too often...gives a whole new meaning to the phrase 'band of outsiders.'" - V MAGAZINE

"a smooth and lovely merging of creative minds and identities" - PAPER MAGAZINE

"warm, youthful" - NYLON

"the single mixes poetry, R&B, and pop to create a new sound tinged with nostalgia." - ESSENCE

"Insanely transfixing" - AFROPUNK



LA-based alternative duo closegood release their debut EP GRAVEN today. GRAVEN is a compilation of tracks that transcend boundaries sonically and lyrically, which Rolling Stone praised. Executive produced by G.O.O.D Music 's Grammy-winning producer/engineer, Anthony Kilhoffer ( Kanye West / Travis Scott ), their sound lives somewhere between trip-hop, Electro-R&B, and dark pop. Individually they are not confined by any gender binaries nor social norms with both identifying as transgender, and their music boldy explores these complexities.

Songwriter/producer, Nyfe and producer Amada, met in college in a small town in Napa County. They began recording music in the on-campus studio as an effort to escape their individual battles with depression. GRAVEN was their escape from the world and it chronicles their journey to healing.

"'Graven' was a word I always heard as a child in relation to religion and idolatry. I found fascinating the idea that anyone could create something and it rival god. The project, to me, feels like a process of defying oneself, being made in your own image, and not letting fear, difference, or death deter you from celebrating your divinity." - NYFE

"I found working with closegood on their first release inspiring and refreshing. It was great to be a part of shaping their sound of simplistic soul trap beats behind 2019's lyrical miseducation. - ANTHONY KILHOFFER
