Barry Rock’s “Closer” is an effort that calls back to the pop and rock style of the late 1970s and early 1980s. Hints of Billy Joel and Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes can be heard during this track. Bits of guitars blend with a sizzling bit of horns. The back and forth feels like a couple talking. The heavenly vocals of Rock during Closer are sedate and tell a tremendous tale over the course of the single’s run time. Closer’s drums are the glue that holds everything together; they reach out and build up to a glorious marriage of the different elements presented here.
