Gigi Edgley - Closer



I honestly didn't know that Gigi had recorded music. Once I heard this track, I knew that it was an amazing thing that she did/does record music. Her voice is so cool and this song is one of the coolest things I've heard in a while. The video is amazingly sci-fi and fits into her already established fan base but the fact that it's a good, and I mean really good, future pop song only helps solidify her as an artist in the genre, not just an actress that wants to record an album. Visually, the video is gorgeous. Thematically, it's super cool and it fits with the electro vibe of the song seamlessly. I want to hear more from her. I want to see more videos. Hell, I want to see her perform at DragonCon next year on one of the big stages to an audience full of Gigi fans screaming her name and chanting the lyrics.

Having the opportunity to meet her in 2012 was one of my greatest fan moments and she gave me an incredible hug that meant the world. She let me share my experiences with her and we had a small moment that I cherish forever. Now, hearing her sing, I have a new appreciation for her and I think that this is going to add a lot to her repertoire as an artist and a performer.
