One Year Later: A Closer Look At "Closer"
On October 16th, 2016, we officially published our presence as a group and released our debut effort: Closer. In the 365 days that would follow, we would go on to create some great additional content, find our groove as a band on stage, and bring MEGA PIXEL on the road; from the top of the mitten in Northern Michigan all this way to SXSW in Austin, TX. It was the first time in both of our careers that we were able to generate so much life from a collection of songs.
Closer represented a transition for us as musicians. We were no longer just two guys doing our own thing. We had become a fantastic team that is still just scratching the surface of our potential. We know this to be true because we are still learning.
To celebrate this first year of MEGA PIXEL, we’ve decided to give Closer a refresh. The four original tracks are still there but when you search for the record, you’ll notice that we’ve included the instrumentals as well. We also decided to lose the “EP” from project. The "production" or instrumentation and mixing of a record is just as important to us as the songs themselves, so these new (inst) versions will hopefully allow you to hear all the emotion we put into these tunes separate from the lyrics. We want you guys to know us inside and out; from the opening swell of Let Go to the first lick of Born With It (Instrumental). Issa vibe..
This new version of Closer can be found on all digital retailers and stores. We’ve also included some links below.
As MEGA PIXEL, we can’t express enough how much your support has meant to us this past year. The love that you have shown Closer has taken us to heights that we didn’t even think about when we first started this project.
We can’t wait to hear what you guys think of the new stuff;)
