Makin Waves Song of the Week: “Close 2 U” by Ser Xerri

After a pre-pandemic year that included touring the U.S. as guitarist for Remember Jones and having his song, “Sympathetic Response,” placed on Investigation Discovery’s nationally televised “Primal Instinct,” Ser Xerri (pronounced “Sir Sherry”) has released his new single, “Close 2 U.” 

Produced and drummed by John Tacon of the Asbury two-piece Brick + Mortar, the single is accompanied by a cinematic music video filmed on location in Asbury Park and Bradley Beach and featuring an acting turn by Shore-based Bar/None recording artist Little Hag, aka Avery Mandeville. The funny, erotic clip was filmed by the Asbury-based LVL 13 production company.

As the Makin Waves Song of the Week, “Close 2 U” also can be heard between 6 and 8 p.m. on Aug. 19 on “Radio Jersey” at ThePenguinRocks.com

The lustful, social-distancing-themed power ballad features a spacious groove, a simple hook, and dramatic guitar solos. Where lyrics of a typical song in the genre ask for love and sex, Ser instead yearns simply to be “within six feet” of his love interest, eroticizing otherwise mundane acts like taking “your gloves off one finger at a time.”
