New Music: Alex Clare – “Too Close” aka Microsoft Internet Explorer Song

27 Mar

If you’ve seen the new Microsoft Internet Explorer commercials and wondered what that song is that you find yourself enamored with, it’s “Too Close” by Alex Clare.  Yes, me, a person who is not a fan of dubstep actually enjoys this track.  But really it is the soulful voice of the British singer-songwriter throughout his record, The Lateness Of The Hour, that has me constantly listening to the disc that dabs all over from soul, dubstep, electronic and jazz.  Personally I dig “Hands Are Clever,” “I Love You” and “Whispering” plus he covers Prince’s “When Doves Cry” but what really is a HUGE bonus on the record is it was produced by Diplo and Switch aka Major Lazer.  How wicked awesome is that!
