All the artwork for ‘How Do We Stay Here?’ was created by Corey Meyers. Last summer, when we were still figuring out what this album was going to be, we sent Corey a very raw version of the record and asked him to basically create whatever he felt like. What he came up with far exceeded our expectations, as he captured the vibe of the music perfectly and visually created a world where the listener could let their mind wander to. 

After seeing the front cover, we were so excited that we asked if he would direct a video with the same aesthetic. With the help of Carol Aldrighi, the two of them spent a few months creating the video for ‘Carefully in the Dark’. The video is primarily stop motion animation with a few digital animation sections and showcases both Corey’s graphic design, as well as hand, painted images by Carol. The two of them worked tirelessly on this video and we are in awe of how it turned out.

Close Talker released their latest album ‘Lens’, via Nevado Music (worldwide) and DevilDuck Records (EUR) in April of 2017. The album was well-received by listeners and fans as well as international publications, such as NPR and Billboard Magazine. Close Talker received high praise and plays on NPR’s World Café, who stated the song ‘Afterthought’ is “as intimate as it is earnest… it’s expansive and as a result, an invitation to lean right in.” Close Talker forthcoming record “How Do We Stay Here?”, showcases a new musical direction for the band, introducing deeper lyrical performances and beauty in the surrounding instrumentation. Close Talker’s music is both captivating and liberating and allows listeners to stop, take a breath, and appreciate the present while fighting to remain in it.
