When Braid announced that they would be both performing live and releasing new material earlier in the year - I didn’t know whom to hug first.

Ordered my advance copy of the Closer to Closed EP earlier in the week and received my MP3 download link by email.   

After having repeated listens to Closer to Closed in my car - I’ve come to the conclusion that the EP starts and ends with the stand out track : “You Are the Reason”

This is possibly now my favorite Bob Nana (on vocals) Braid song that they’ve ever put out.
