About Close Encounter

Seattle-based band Close Encounter is chill music for aliens. They use an effectual yet melodic blend of psychedelic, catchy guitar, slow tempo beats, and introspective vocal mood to depict the dawn of a new age. With so much of contemporary rock music dominated by single figures and rigidly defined genres, Close Encounter was formed with the goal to compose collaboratively. The lead vocal role is even shared among the two guitarists. Allowing members to explore their own sonic tastes - whether it be dream pop, funk, hip-hop, or darkwave - Close Encounter is a union of complementary forces that generates a unique, yet consistent sonic palette. Close Encounter consists of Bill Darksoft (Guitar/Vocals), Bobby Sydney (Guitar/Vocals), and Cameron Lambert (Drums). After 3 bassist departures they have severe bass trust issues, and play as a 4 piece live with a bass for hire.

With a guitar and modest pedal board, Bobby Sydney (Goldd) mimics the drone of skidoos and airplanes in harmony, laying a lush foundation. His tenor vocals add to a soundscape reminiscent of Slowdive, My Bloody Valentine, or contemporaries like DIIV and Connan Mockasin. Before moving to Seattle, Bobby was previously of Fort Worth Texas shoegazers Skeleton Coast. Bill Darksoft’s (Banadu) lead guitar lines skirt funk, peppered with a love for the jangley chorus sound and pop anthems from 80s heroes like @Echo and the Bunnymen @The Cure, or contemporaries like @FutureIslands and @Black Marble. Bill has previously played with Hibou, Maiah Manser, and Fit For Hounds. He has engineered for Snuff Redux, Dead Bars, Red Ribbon, and other bands in Seattle.
