Isn't it interesting that two people never perceive an image in the exact same way? From optical illusions to daydreams, perspective is quite the phenomenon. What one person may see as attractive may elicit disgust from someone else. The fickle love story is no different. ‘Closer’ by Phe R.E.D.S regally captures the ebb and flow of a blossoming relationship. Its blend of conflicting emotions and dazzling ambiance will have you exploring different sides of yourself. It shows that no matter your past experiences, you can find love again!
The savory hooks of the song stem from the conversational tone of the lyrics. Phe R.E.D.S offers the compelling narrative of a cautious, guarded individual who's been heartbroken before. Meanwhile, featured artist Catch24’s persona is encouraging him to open up and take the leap of faith with her. The pair's vocals embody a luscious, seductive tone that reels you in like a fishing line. The surreal atmosphere of R&B-infused synths transports you to the love dimension, where time slows down. It’s a romantic getaway in song form!
Leng Phe (alias Phe R.E.D.S) is one of the most recent Seattle musicians to gain international acclaim. His stage name combines his last name with the acronym “Remember Every Dream Stolen.” It pays homage to his family, who were refugees from Cambodia during the Khmer Rouge. He's a well-known break-dancer (or b-boy) for AOM and a licensed private pilot. Through the former, the Cambodian-American artist was discovered and signed to independent record label H1GHR MUSIC. Having racked up 2.9 million streams over the last year alone, he's a rapidly rising R&B icon! ‘Closer’ marks the start of a new chapter and leads up to a larger project coming later this year!
