Calvin Harris’ Feel so close to you right now feels like it’s going to be as much of a “summer song” as Call me Maybe. It’s the kind of song you hear blasting out of speakers at the neighborhood pool or that comes on the radio while you’re driving home from meeting up with high school friends while home from college during the summer. I know that sounds specific, but there are only very specific songs that fit those niches just right, and this is one of them.
So I was excited to see that the music video is the same way. It’s simultaneously friendly and flirty and faithful and fun… it’s tough to fit together as many vignettes as it does but I think it does it right, moreso in the second half of the video. I’m not sure where it’s supposed to be taking place, the UK or the US, though I watched for clues. I don’t think it really matters.
Anyway, the point is, it’s the perfect portrayal of “summer in the middle of the country.” Watch it above!
Please don’t try to pretend that all these April showers haven’t made you think of Cry Me a River at least a little bit.
Don’t Look Back, She & Him
Colorbars. Pandas. Spike Jonze. This song. What more could you want? Stop being greedy.
