I Love You Close is a new single from San Francisco based artist, Rae du Soleil. The sound is a unique blend of lounge and alternative neo-folk. Her vocal tone reminds me a bit of The Cranberries. She delivers the romantically driven lyrics with a soft assertiveness and heartfelt sincerity. Though the mix is relatively minimalist, the song is complex in its structure and layout. There are a lot of hidden musical surprises that crop up for the listener. Some of the “Flight of the Conchords” style guitar hooks on the track are really nice. Somehow Rae manages to say “I love you” in a million different ways in this song it never gets old.
