Kansas City-based group Hembree have dropped their latest single “Close To Me” where they pay tribute to genuine, intimate companionship. It’s a sanguine love song that celebrates the bond between two people who can help each other through the darkest times. The funky track is from their upcoming record It’s A Dream!, which will be arriving on February 4th

The band’s Isaac Flynn shared, “‘Close to Me’ is a song that I had written a few years ago that just kept lingering in my mind. After finishing all the demos for what became, It’s a Dream!, I felt like the record needed a lift and a bit more optimism, so the band and I opened this song up again. It’s a love song through and through with a narrative based in companionship. It’s about devotion to whoever is down to pull you out of the dark, and get you through the strange times and all of life’s struggles — that could be a partner, friend or even your dog. This one’s for the ride or dies”

It’s A Dream! will be out on February 4th
