Nick de la Hoyde – “About U”


A stylish new pop track from Sydney-based artist Nick de la Hoyde, “About U” delivers the feeling of lovestruck infatuation amidst peppy hooks and charming vocals. Thumping bass and snap-laden percussion accompany understated vocals and guitar fragments in the initial verses. The “I just wanna talk about you,” hook plays with sincere and hooky qualities. The initial verses re-emerge around mid-way, bolstered by more vibrant rhythms and involved guitars. “About U” is a lovely, well-produced track from Nick de la Hoyde that fans of weightless-sounding pop tunes are likely to enjoy.

Per the track’s press release, “‘About U’ is “about that feeling you have when you’re with someone and all you want to do is talk about them – you want to know everything about them and you are literally stuck, infatuated, so in love that nothing else matters.”

“About U” and other memorable tracks from this September can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of September 2021’ Spotify playlist.
