Listen to Alex Cameron ‘Take Care of Business’ on New Single

The second single from his upcoming debut album 'Jumping The Shark' is dark '80s snyth madness

Australian singer-songwriter Alex Cameron’s new song “Take Care of Business” is pure 1980s grief, in the best possible way. It’s the type of track a teenage Molly Ringwald character would have played on repeat after a breakup. The song is the second single from Cameron’s forthcoming debut album Jumping The Shark, to be released by Secretly Canadian on August 19. “Business” is a slow-building, minimalistic synth track with dark and introspective lyrics. Cameron’s voice is hauntingly methodical as he croons out “And when we kiss I feel her smile / Oh she stops and looks at me / And just takes care of business.”

The video for the song is a perfectly simple paring – Cameron, on a small dark stage lit up in blue, sings out to a crowd we can’t see. His movements are slow and purposeful, his hair slicked back, and his suit straight from a totally bitchin’ Armani runway show.
