Chic Gamine : Closer

Chic Gamine is a harmony of four Manitoban voices and the percussive play of a Montreal artist. This acoustic rendering of “Closer” was recorded in the calmest spot of the Winnipeg Folk Festival.

The initial plan was to film in a huge, open field, as a homage to their native Manitoba’s endless plains, but hey, another band started playing in that spot. So the team gathered up its equipment and went looking for a place that would allow the four singers to shine bright and show off its Motown influences. “I just wanna be closer (alright)/Just a little closer (that’s fine)/Why can’t I feel?../And all the signs that stand in our way/Just lead to the highway/Sayin’ it’s not time/For you and me…/And yes I know what’s right and what’s wrong/Fool to myself that I can move on, oh yeah/And little girls, they never can see/Skin’s not as thick as they’d like it to be, oh yeah…” Created in 2007, the quartet is carving out a choice place in the world of new Canadian music. Listen to “Closer”, a magnificent track, in this BRBR clip presentation!
