Romare Releases new video ‘Come Close To Me (Live Session 1)’


Just in time for Summer’s warm up arrives Romare’s ‘Come Close To Me (Live Session 1)’ a hazy, pulled-apart live edit of the single taken from his 2016 LP Love Songs: Part Two.

Along with the track, which rides out like a slow-burning exercise in self-sampling, is a witty, 80’s inspired music video drenched in analog VHS sheen and complete with a blurry Mazda speeding off into a fading dusk. “From our first phone call discussing the concept for ‘Come Closer’ [Come Close To Me’ – Ed]“, says director Greg Barnes “Archie (Romare) and I were on the same page. We both wanted to push the limits of what a performance-based, session style video could be, and it was clear that meant smoke, lasers, and his Mazda.
