International DJ and Producer Nick Talos drops ‘Looking To Love’ with singer Chelcee Grimes
DJ and producer Nick Talos has officially released his first track of 2020, ‘Looking To Love’, out now via Universal Music and Virgin Records. Teaming up with singer/songwriter and professional footballer Chelcee Grimes for the vocals, this stellar single is perfect for both the dancefloor and chart alike.
The track begins with a catchy reversed-vocal melody over muted house snares, hi-hats and synths. Acting as the perfect intro, Chelcee’s vocals swiftly come in with the verse, singing of loneliness and love, along with an electric piano. As the track grows we hear the chorus vocals for the first time, while part way through, a snare, FX sweep and the original melody build up to the drop. As the chorus vocals are repeated, all other parts cut out, leaving a powerful kick and percussive synth bass. On its third repetition however, in come the classic House backbeat hi-hats with clap, cymbals and percussion, finally revealing the main chorus and ending with the hook line ‘We’re looking to love’. As the song structure repeats, it builds again, this time to a new section, an extension of the ‘Looking to love’ hook. With the repeated hook line and a digitally transformed vocal melody this is the song at its danceable best, and, after a brief bridge section, the track ends this way in style.
Nick Talos had a hugely successful 2019, and the release of ‘Looking To Love’ marks the start of what promises to be a super exciting year. The German-born producer returns to his dance and club routes with this highly catchy single and has teamed up with the talented Chelcee Grimes on vocals. Not only a successful songwriter for the likes of Dua Lipa, Kylie Minogue, Zara Larsson and more, she is also a professional footballer, currently playing for Fulham Ladies in London, and with these two up-and-coming talents collaborating for the first time, 2020 is set to be a great year for both.
