Star Slinger — “Close to Me” and Video

11 Apr

A favorite of ours here at Tunes, Star Slinger provides us with his visual representation of “Close to Me”, his collaboration with producer Teams. Unlike his euphoric “Mornin’” video, this piece plays on the cautions and insecurities people have with strangers in a peculiar, clever way. It does this wonderful tune justice in perfectly fitting fashion, despite its pure oddness. Star Slinger and Teams’ recent team-up EP is up for download here. Give the video a look here.

Also, here’s Star Slinger’s remix of Alex Winston’s “Sister Wife,” in which I think our ever consistent producer does a wonderful job taking advantage of the song’s rich vocals and replacing the acoustic guitar with a relaxed synth and some nice punchy rhythms:
