Alex Clare is an artist that I keep stumbling upon.
I’ve Shazamed (yes, I’m making it a verb) his song “Too Close” at least half a dozen times. It’s such a new and different sound that it caught me off guard the first few times I heard it.
It’s the perfect blend of electronic music and soul. I like electronic music, but the airwaves are saturated with eelctronic crap — yes, I’m talking about Pitbull, Nicki Minaj, Enrique, and “Jenny from the block”. Yuck.
I really enjoy the soulful tones of his voice. He slightly reminds me of Daniel Merriweather.
He’s a really great singer who uses electronic production/music to enhance his sound, not mask it a la Britney Spears and Nicki Minaj.
Alex Clare is a perfect example of how dance/electronic music can be great and enjoyable. Take note Pitbull!
Note to self: Pick up Alex Clare‘s album, The Lateness of the Hour.
