Video: Alialujah Choir – “Closer Than I should”

On the back of placid guitar strumming, Alialujah Choir lets their soft vocals wash over this song with grace. Each verse grows into an energized proclamation as the choir’s chords grow heavier and their vocal emotion becomes more distinct.


The final minutes of the song turn into a sweeping instrumental jam with heavier drums and pounding piano keys. Synths and a theremin roll in to add to this crescendo of instruments and give this song a big ending. Check it out!
