CLOSE DISTANCE is the new endeavour let by Jelle Van Giel, who is looking for new ways to compose in a smaller line-up, blending piano and guitar into melodies, with his typical style: melodic, energetic, emotional and rich in sound. The music is based on modern improvised music with atmospheric indie-rock influences and cinematic soundscapes, in a way that doesn’t make any concessions, but rather develops new possibilities.

Melodies evoke, rhythms ignite, harmonies resonate—an enchanting quartet full of energy.
