With its infectious sing-along chorus and exceptional guitar craftsmanship, the track effortlessly grabs your attention and refuses to let go. Each moment is a joy to experience, as its super catchy hooks create an irresistible charm that guarantees instant love from every listener.

“Close Your Eyes is about falling in love for the first time as a teenager with your best friend. But it’s a secret relationship and will always remain one. It’s about ‘first times’ and the intensity, confusion and beauty they come with.” – Tom Ryder.
