Independent hard rock band Version 5 recently debuted its latest single and video.

The band debuted its new single, ‘Close My Eyes‘ Feb. 12 along with the song’s companion video. The song exhibits a musical arrangement that harkens back to the sounds of the 90s. At some points, the use of the guitars and vocals hints at influence from the likes of Living Colour while at others it presents influence from The Union Underground and Gravity Kills. The contrast in such distinctly polar opposite acts’ influences seems like it would not work, but surprisingly does.

The lyrical theme that accompanies the song’s musical arrangement will generate its own engagement. While no information has been provided as to the song’s lyrical theme, it can be inferred that the message might be a familiar rumination on a broken relationship.

The song’s video takes place in a 1920s setting, which band member Andy Olsen discussed.

“For the video, I thought it would be cool to “bring back the roaring 20s” for the 2020s,” said Olson.  “Spencer, AJ and I liked the idea of being a jazz trio- because this song was a heavy rock song, we wanted to avoid the cliches and have an image that isn’t necessarily associated with a rock band. We lucked out, because we were able to rent out an actual speakeasy bar in Minneapolis.”
