Forming in late 2016, Close To Call came together with the shared desire to offer their own iteration of barebones pop-punk to an ever growing scene.
Hailing from different corners of the UK, the band finds its home in the Surrey town of Guildford, with the guys coming together during their time at university. Consisting of Dan Dawes (Vocals/Guitar), Jack Elsbury (Guitar), Cameron MacCallum (Drums) and Luke Oldfield (Bass/Vocals), this completes the line up of a promising up-and-coming four piece.
Finding influence from the likes of Blink 182, Green Day and Neck Deep, the band’s sound can be conceived from a love of pop-punk, but with increasing influences from both hardcore and pop genres.
Keen to put themselves on the map, the band entered the studio late February 2017 to begin work on their debut EP release, due to show it’s colours in the summer of 2017, with a single release right on the horizon.
The band’s lyrics are set to inspire being a better version of yourself, finding solace in the small things and making the most of life while we’re still living it, whilst at the same time coming face to face with harsh realities and the challenges that come with them.
Mostly coming from backgrounds with little to no music scene at all, each of the members relocated to put themselves in the middle of somewhere they’re surrounded by like minded people who want to be a part of something bigger.
So with this in mind, keep your eye out for Close To Call on gig posters in and around London and along the South Coast to experience what they have to offer yourself.
