Too Close represents a major leap forward for Ontario’s The Noolands. The act is immediately able to create a bouncing beat and a memorable set of vocals that cut through the band’s instrumentation. There is a rawness, a ferocity to Too Close that calls back to the earliest days of Foo Fighters and Bloc Party. Of particular note during Too Close has to be the intricate guitar line and the stop-start preciseness of the drums. A ropy bass line unites these elements nicely, making for a track that has legs for months. A bit of fuzz incorporated into the vox further instills the cut with an organic and honest flair.
