Too Much, Beyond The Pale

A fresh new cut from a budding artist that is already making the Internet rounds while less than a couple of days after its release? Yep, sounds about right. Pale is the most recent exciting act to emerge. You'll see.

The first seconds of Too Much hint at a steady, slow burn electro lullaby, yet as the song evolves (and in particular when the vocals bounce in) it becomes a gem with a killer melody and a chorus that feels designed to embed itself into your brain for days. It's a great track, and hopefully it's not the first and last time that we hear from Pale cos there's something about it that makes me feel like it'd be the opening shot of something (too) much more grand.

There's a similarly striking video to go with the song, in which a figure embraces the act of being covered in nasty gooey paint. Check it out below. It reminds me of the short movie for Mud  by Peaches. Click the button after the jump to watch it (first video) and compare these two clips by your own.
