Feel So Close


"Feel So Close" is a song by Scottish recording artist Calvin Harris from his album 18 Months. It was released as the album's second single on 19 August 2011. Harris returns to singing on this song, after previously stating he had quit singing in concerts.[1] In the United Kingdom, the song debuted at number two, becoming Harris' sixth solo top ten single. The song also marked his second to chart on the US Billboard Hot 100 (his first being featured on Rihanna's "We Found Love"). It was first heard by many Americans as the music for Team iLuminate's routine on the America's Got Talent finals show on 13 September 2011. The song was featured in the CW's supernatural drama The Secret Circle in the fourteenth episode of the first season which was titled "Valentine", and also in the sixth episode of the fourth season of The Vampire Diaries from the same network. The song has sold over 2 million copies in the US as of August 2012.[2]

[edit]Music videoEdit

The music video for "Feel So Close" premiered on Harris' official YouTube channel in July 2011.[3]

As well as depicting Harris watching and sitting with a girl, it also shows various groups of youths dancing, as was the theme of the previous video. It also features the rancher cowboy and his horse, who became featured on the single cover. It was filmed in and around Kern County, California. The truck stop scene (Reyes Polish) was filmed in Kramer Junction, California (in San Bernardino County, California); the suburban scene at the intersection of Clark and Lapis Streets, in Rosamond, California; the desert town scene in Randsburg, California.

[edit]Critical receptionEdit

Robert Copsey of Digital Spy gave the song four out of five stars writing, "'I feel so close to you right now/ It's a force field', he sing-speaks in a clumsy but infatuated manner over melancholic piano chords, before a breezy, lyric-less chorus of squawking electronic sirens and crazy synths bound around like a bucking bronco at a Texas rodeo rave. The result is a wistful yet exhilarating club thumper—and as for those vocals, well, if you want something done right..."[4]
