Animals From Nick de la Hoyde Will Give You The Inner Strength You Need For 2019

22 May

Just in time for Summer, Sydney based Nick de la Hoyde released his latest song entitled Animals. Within the song, he has collaborated with ZU/ZU in producing his latest hit. The base tone of the song will make you think of traditional hymns as piano keys strike. Hoyde’s voice is strong and enchants listeners. With lyrics like “blue eyes like the open water”,”love cries, but it never forgets”, his writing spins visual metaphors that are out of this world. The song does have an undertone appreciation for Animals both in the wild and in our lives as well. Animals will come before his full tracked album A Beautiful Mess, set to release in June/July. Listeners will connect with his anthemic tone of singing as it is reminiscent of Foster The People, The 1975, and dashes of Shawn Mendes. While you cannot pin down exactly what his sound consists of, being exposed to a multi-cultural household with numerous global influences definitely showcases the textured mixture of the sound he has crafted that gives him instant identity.
