The most thumbs-upped comment on Alex Clare's latest, produced again by Diplo and Switch, puts the pause on Clare's lyric, But there's something inside that I need to release. But the second most popular comment is maybe more insightful: "Maroon 5 meets Dubstep." Not the deepest comparison, but Maroon 5 were a stupidly famous band, and ex-chef Alex Clare has a stupidly expressive voice, and with every new single backed by Island Records and a little luck, he could be heading toward household name. Diplo plugs for BlackBerry, Clare at least deserves an NBA Finals commercial.
