British singer, songwriter and poet Aeris Roves shares his new single "Pulling Me Closer." Championed by the likes of Billie Eilish, who invited him to support her on her European tour, the breezy single reiterates the warming feelings of initial attraction and positions Roves as an exciting new artist in the galaxy of neo-soul.
Rooted in soul and modern R&B, "Pulling Me Closer" features delicate guitar plucks and a soothing melodic line that oozes a sepia-toned nostalgic vibe. With Roves' vocals layering the musical foundations with their lust-fuelled emotions, the single's gooey, sweet sonics melt into your eardrums with ease. With lush tones and a harmonic balance of euphonious acoustics, "Pulling Me Closer" inhabits a lullaby-like quality that makes you want to fall in love with Roves himself.
Co-written and produced by Two Inch Punch, the track first began as an acoustic idea on Instagram. "A trip to Los Angeles with Two Inch Punch offered the inspiration needed to finish the production," he explains. "Thematically, it explores a situation of initial attraction, in that it’s unexpected and intense, pondering the fact that once it takes hold, it is very difficult to let go of." With the track's personal inspiration engrained within its textures, "Pulling Me Closer" feels ever more emotive.
