Track Review: Nick De La Hoyde Doubles Down on the Pop for His First Single of 2022 [Gatacombe Music] [Lyric Video]

Since Nick De La Hoyde established his devoted EDM/lofi trio D.E.L along with his brothers Matt and Timm, it appears he’s determined to focus extra on the pop finish of issues along with his solo work, at the least for now. Whereas D.E.L focuses on sound design, EDM beats and ravey composition, Nick’s previous few singles have been extra pop-leaning, albeit nonetheless fantastically produced with the assistance of those self same brothers. “Devotion” is the most recent instance of the heady, nearly ballad-like vibes this musician is able to conjuring.

The final observe You EDM checked out from Nick and his brothers, “About U,” got here as a double launch with a D.E.L observe known as “Yoko,” and it’s clear in each these tracks there’s a little bit of mingling of kinds. With the final observe of the yr, nonetheless, there appears to be a aware shift to extra indie pop vibes. “No Sense” was a take a look at anxiousness from inside one’s personal head and the swirling ideas that may result in being overwhelmed. Actually resonant with the majority of the western world in the mean time as an idea, “No Sense” has a Twenty One Pilots’ “Careworn Out” vibe that, whereas it makes use of some digital manufacturing strategies, lands squarely on the aspect of indie pop.

Written by all three De La brothers, “Devotion” is simply pop when it comes to composition, actually and it’s attention-grabbing to see them delve even deeper into indie pop. Hearkening again to indie pop’s inception with bands like fellow Aussies INXS (there’s a robust “By no means Tear Us Aside” vein right here), “Devotion” is bluesy, dramatic, melodic and orchestral along with indie and poppy. Most likely one of many greatest tracks when it comes to sound saturation the trio have made to-date, followers will swear they’ve heard it in a blockbuster film. Nick, Timm and Joseph’s work has at all times been prime quality however it is a new echelon. If “Devotion” isn’t in a movie by summer season, that’s the trade’s loss.

It appears that evidently separating their tasks into D.E.L and Nick’s “solo” stuff has freed up the De La Hoydes to play with type, substance and style on each side of issues, although followers most likely shouldn’t get too comfy with one being EDM and the opposite being pop. If something it appears just like the brothers will probably be folding much more mashups into their work, and nobody mentioned there wouldn’t be crossover work once more. It simply appears all a part of the ever-expanding De La Hoyde pop/indie pop/EDM/blues/lofi/no matter else empire, and we’re positively right here for it.
