New Music Video: Oxygen – Nicky Davey

Nicky Davey Oxygen

Nick Green and Dave Rosser officially formed the soulful project NICKY DAVEY in 2011. They started out just making records together under various aliases until they carved a sound they could truly call their own.

Constantly striving to reinvent the modern pop song, they were given the opportunity to work closely with Odd Future affiliates, The Internet. Lead Singer Nick Green’s vocal production on The Internet’s Ego Death helped earn it a Grammy nomination for Best Urban Contemporary Album. Back in February, Nicky Davey were the only duo unsigned to a major label to be featured on the NOW 57 compilation.

Oxygen is an infectious and sensual slow jam layered with Nick Green’s soulful vocals. Written with long time collaborator and friend Syd Tha Kyd (The Internet) the song is about the first stages of love, Nick adds: ‘I wanted to be honest to myself and others about the way I felt. I feel like as songwriters we all write songs in some shape or form about our love interest/inspiration’. Directed by Dan Stowell and Rich Yodsukar, the black-and-white visuals emphasize the raw feel of the song.

Oxygen is the first single taken from their upcoming album XXX set to be released later this year.

New Track! My Place – SleepLust

My Place sleeplust

In the span of less than two years, songstress/poet Meghan Tartamella and twin brothers Michael and Joseph Pepe -aka – SLEEPLUST – has become one of Los Angeles’s most exciting and sought after indie electronic pop outfits.

The trio released their debut self-titled EP in November to critical acclaim and commercial success. Recorded in their hometown of Charlotte, North Carolina, the five track release is an homage to the band’s roots, hometown and the major transition periods in life we can all relate to. “The EP really speaks to those shifts in emotions, priorities and relationships. It’s about coming more into ourselves and feeling safe in who/where that is.” Tartamella says wistfully.

My Place sleeplust

Their latest single My Place is the first song written and recorded in the band’s new home of Los Angeles. The three-and-a-half minute production displays the band’s unique trademark, which combines brooding electronics, wandering synths and heavy bass, all brought together by Tartamella’s sultry yet focused melodies.

This Spring,  SLEEPLUST’s music will be featured on major cable networks such as MTV, VH1, E! and Oxygen. The band is also busy headlining select West Coast tour dates and playing festivals this summer.
