Oshawa is known for being Canada's automotive capital — and for birthing the ever-glistening indie pop band, Dizzy. As the release of their self-titled third album draws nearer, the quartet of Katie Munshaw and Alex, Charlie and Mackenzie Spencer are continuing to build the anticipation with wistful new single "Close."

"Back in 2019 we were on tour in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, when the wheel bearing on our van went kaput on American Thanksgiving," Munshaw explained in a statement. "It was a hard day but the only thing I can really remember about it is laughing in the mechanic's waiting room and then finding our way back to a hotel with a bottle of green room whiskey."

"We've been through a lot as a band but we always manage to reconnect on itchy hotel beds between episodes of Family Guy," she added. "'Close' is about a lot of things but mainly it's about the comfort Mack, Charlie and Alex bring me."

Starkly simple, the accompanying video directed by boy wonder revolves around the concept of "getting back on the horse," with Munshaw repeatedly feeding a children's ride quarters to keep it going. It's a meditation on the precariousness of pursuing a career in music — or building and maintaining relationships in general. "Always felt we were swinging, destined to miss," she sings. "Always felt we were lightning / Just waiting, waiting to hit."
