AMO AMO, the brand new Los Angeles funk-fusion five-piece, released their new single “Closer To You” today. The dreamlike track was produced by Jim James of My Morning Jacket.
“Closer To You” is Amo Amo’s second single. Their first offering “When We’re Gone” was named Today’s Top Tune on KCRW, and more new songs from the band’s Santa Barbara recording session with James will be coming soon.
Amo Amo has been creating buzz around their incredible live show, opening for Os Mutantes and playing Huichica Music Festival this summer. They’ll be playing select dates in California in September, including a show at LA’s Fonda Theatre with Jonathan Wilson and two nights in San Francisco in support of the Ethiopian jazz legend Hailu Mergia.
