«Too Close» is an infectious, synth-laden, upbeat pop song that tells the story of a chance encounter with a stranger that changes everything. One fleeting moment of connection that creates a cosmic splash that ripples through time. Come and have a seat in the «Too Close» Café, a retro-futuristic space diner where stars align and daydreams become reality.
The song has a classic pop feel to it, with Chris Youmans channeling a bit of Michael Jackson while crooning over the bouncy and energetic production. The producers anchor the track with a bassline that could have come from an alternate-dimension «Thriller» produced by DALE and Daniel Bayot instead of Quincy Jones.
Youmans’s forthcoming EP, «Electric Love Connection», is set to launch him into an exciting new era. While his 2016 debut EP, Make Things Right, pulled inspiration from more retro themes, this new voyage leans heavily into progressive disco, house, and pop notes. Within its first month of release, «Danse» got signed into a licensing deal and made waves on the international stage, playing on radio stations across Europe and Central America. Now, «Too Close» is poised to make an even bigger mark.
The new EP marks the beginning of an exciting new collaboration with LA-based artist, producer, and close friend Daniel Bayot. The first two singles feature musical contributions from Hannah Glass and Colin Deas, as well as art direction by Aaron Cassou. Although Youmans previously recorded, produced and released his own music, this new team has allowed for the exploration of new sounds and the discovery of new horizons. «Electric Love Connection» is Youmans’s most advanced iteration of his creative self to date.
Let the voice of Chris Youmans‘ balm your ears with pop tunes filled with love, hopes and desire – just let go and let he do his seductions with his «Too Close» and will never get too close. In the end you just want him to get closer !
Brace yourself for a modern love story filled with secret hopes and desires. Take a listen below.
