Brazilian-bred, Los Angeles-based alternative rock trio SOFIA has released their new single “Closer” along with the official visual for the emotional track. Set against a steady drumbeat and spacey guitars, “Closer” tells the story of someone on the verge of giving up on the relationship because their partner seems to enjoy the chaos that comes from confrontation more than being happy and at peace with the relationship itself.

The visual for “Closer” is the latest installment in SOFIA’s 6-part series of short films accompanying the songs on Stories For The Sleepless. The continuous visual narrative, filmed in Los Angeles and directed by the band’s vocalist/bassist Leonardo Bomeny with his production company Salt Karamel, tells the story of its two main characters B and Tala.

“As the story continues, Tala opens up about her past,” shares the band. “We chose not to have the vocals singing the lyrics in this film so that we could focus on the story Tala is telling B. We want to gradually take the audience into the world of the characters and in order to achieve that, in this part of the story, the only voice that should be heard is Tala’s.”
