The intro rises, setting a serious, yet emotive tone. As the elements unravel, prominent winding vocals and raspy percussion are balanced by a clear, centered kick, grounding the track with salvation. 'Close Your Eyes' beautifully portrays a state of REM.
In contrast, the 'PARADIISE STATE' remix holds a driving bassline throughout. Harrowing synths are complimented by rolling hats and a deep vocal ambience, taking a perfectly formed original to a punchy club level. Expect a rumble that will keep your heart in your throat.
