Disclosure “You & Me” featuring Eliza Doolittle (Cherrytree/Interscope)
Because Disclosure previously teamed with underground heads like Alunageorge and Sam Smith, the vocal from middle-of-the-road (and somewhat undistinguished) UK pop singer Eliza Doolittle on “You & Me” was a bit confounding. (Apparently she shares a mutual friend with the group.) Taken from Disclosure’s forthcoming full-length debut as well as a ham-fisted EP of singles that precedes it, Disclosure stands to make the bevy of Doolittle’s peers jealous on this tune. The production is club-credible and Doolittle’s b-flat minor chorus replete with a solid perfect 4th is radio-ready. The beat is old school UK garage/two-step in a pop merger we haven’t heard since Mis-Teeq’s “Eye Candy” or maybe even the Sugababes’ “One Touch.” Not a bad pairing at all. –Zel
