Seekae's Alex Cameron is back with a snappy new single called She's Mine
She's Mine is Some of Alex Cameron most exciting work to date.
Opening up with a drumbeat that sounds likes it's snapped straight out of the 80s She's Mine doesn't start quite how you would imagine. Indeed on the first listen I couldn't get the idea out of my head I was hearing a very much re-worked beat from Bruce Springsteen's classic Dancing In The Dark. However, instead of channelling the great optimism of the American Dream weaved throughout Springsteen's music, Alex Cameron who isn't an American rather an Australian, channels a bleak but still very catchy perception of the USA. This is compounded by the grey skyline of LA Cameron dances in front of as if laughing in the face of all this misery. The song in question, She's Mine is very simple; an 808 drum machine, some synths and Cameron's voice filter throughout the piece to make it a foot-tapping release that leaves you wanting more.
One of the first tracks I heard from Cameron was Gone South but with She's Mine it seems he's only going north from this point. On an unrelated note you should check out Cameron's website, it's a real gem.
