Riff: Alex Clare – “Too Close”

Oct 10, 2012

Which way is right, which way is wrong/How do I say that I need to move on

from Too Close lyrics by Alex Clare

Its prominent use in an ad for a computer software giant means it’s hard to focus entirely on its soul-baring tale of a commitment-phobe trying to end a relationship in the most amicable way possible. But an impassioned Clare does his best to hold your attention against a towering slab of dubstep.
