We’ve been following Nya’s career for a number of years now, and we’ve seen her go from strength to strength. The artist’s new single, ‘Closer Than Close’ comes with a stunning lyric video that could easily be a ratings-winning anime cartoon. Born in Florida, but now based in Los Angeles, Nya’s latest track is deeply personal, as it documents her long-distance relationship with her Uruguay-based fiancé, and her frequent – and necessary – travel between there and Los Angeles.
With effervescent vocals that glide effortlessly over the instrumental track, Nya’s lyrics find their perfect home when matched to jazzy instrumentals and slinky melodies. Nya’s previous release, ‘Won’t Pick Up The Phone’, has so far garnered a massive 2 million streams across all platforms, and we can safely say ‘Closer Than Close’ will do similar numbers, if not better.
‘Closer Than Close’ takes an intimate look at young love, with the song taking her vocals to new heights, soaring on the melodies as they illustrate immaculately the idea of finding a safe haven within a person that you love; fears and insecurities wash away with the instance of a touch. Produced by an elite team of Grammy winning artists, ‘Closer Than Close’ allows Nya to express her style with a rap component, that brings about a whimsical and comforting element to the track.
The gorgeous lyric video is executed as an anime romance, and should on that basis alone gain many views among fans of the genre. The dreamy scenery is animated so exquisitely that it is possible to forget the lush flowers and streetscapes are only real in the imagination of the animators, and meanwhile Nya’s vocals float untethered in the story of how love triumphs.
