Close Eyes To Exit is the debut studio album by Dutch alternative rock band Klangstof, released in September 2016 via Mind Of A Genius Records.

Close Eyes To Exit is a sweet and soothing exercise in synthpop-meets-indie-rock exuberance, full of catchy melodic hooks and spacey drum beats.

Klangstof has an indisputable command of melody writing, and nearly every song on Close Eyes To Exit has ear worm synth lines and guitar parts that are bound to be stuck in the listener’s head for days. There are scores of small details littered throughout it’s 11-tracks, from the enthralling crescendo of curtain-raiser “Doolhof” to the nimble interplay of voice and guitar on “Seasons”, that show Klangstof are more than capable songwriters, producers, and sound designers, but a cohesive group that crafts songs with intention, vision and purpose.

These are delicate pop songs coated in a precise aesthetic, consisting of gloomy atmospherics and gorgeous instrumentals.

The lyrics are as ambiguous as they come (“Spiralling down towards the mouth, you’re howling,” goes “Hostage”, like random passages taken out of a fantasy book). Melodies are sharp, but they’d be nothing without the record’s feather-light production. Klangstof have built themselves a unique, identifiable sound - a feat some bands take half a dozen records to achieve.

With this trademark in tow, Close Eyes To Exit  breezes from Mogwai-nodding doom (“Doolhof”) to “We Are Your Receiver”’s grandiose force, up their with M83 in the arena-worthy synth stakes.

On this record, Klangstof have built themselves a foolproof blueprint to follow, one that could span a lifetime. It is an album that has unmistakable personality, a presence and a humanity that make it far greater as a whole than the sum of its parts.

Check out the tracks: Close Eyes To Exit”; “Seasons”; "Hostage" and “We Are Your Receiver”.

This limited edition LP is pressed in Europe on Black Vinyl.
