Nick de la Hoyde is on the rise with his honest lyrics and modernized pop production. Continuing on that trajectory, the Sydney-based singer-songwriter is making waves with his new single, "California."
With its light and tropical vibes, "California" is a mesmerizing track. The production's spacey and ambient textures capture the floating, free elements one can experience after immersing themselves in California's spirit. Lulling "I knew this was gonna be my destination," he speaks to every dream-chaser pursuing their purpose. Speaking on the tune, Hoyde says:
“There are some places in life you get the chance to see and visit and immediately fall in love with. You feel an attachment, that for me, feels a bit like being lost in a beautiful dream. Within its beauty, it has its demons, but the demons are sometimes what also makes it beautiful. LA/California is that place for me, and that is what inspired me to write the song!”
"California" is a timeless tune that captures the essence of the golden state's legacy. From the Gold Rush to the star-studded entertainment industries, California has been the ultimate destination for dreamers. Though it holds opportunity, it's up to you to make things happen.
Nick de la Hoyde has quickly started to make a name for himself. Only when he was 16 and, at the time pursuing a soccer career in Barcelona, did he start really expressing himself through music. Releasing music on his own label and using his powerful voice to promote youth empowerment, Nick de la Hoyde isn't fighting away his dreams any longer.
