Nicky Davey: One Cool Refreshing Soulful Pop Duo From Los Angeles
The LA rock and soul duo Nicky Davey just dropped a video for their single “Been Lovin’ You”.
The duo is made of Dave Rosser and lead singer Nick Green, who’s vocal production on The Internet’s Ego Death helped earn it a Grammy nomination for Best Urban Contemporary Album.
Nick Green and Dave Rosser officially formed the project in 2011
So they fusioned into Nicky Davey, which is a fun name, quite as fun as their latest video.
Highlighting one free-minded dude who has got nothing but love to give.
The visual is actually hilarious, as it would almost look like a parody of Michael Jackson
Claiming his love to the first unknown pretty young thing across the street (The Way You Make Me Feel).
Besides, digging the match between the video and the lyrics, it seems the singer has been giving love but never received back
Like loving a stranger…
They started out just making records together under various aliases until they carved a sound they could truly call their own.
Their approach to songwriting has always had a strong emphasis on beauty, combined with infectious hooks.
Their music features lush vocal arrangements, infused with the melodic honey of the talk box over organic beats.
Constantly striving to reinvent the modern pop song, they were given the opportunity to work closely with Odd Future affiliates, The Internet..
Directed by Rich Yodsukar and filmed in the streets of downtown Los Angeles, the music video captures in a light-hearted way the reality of being musicians in L.A
“We live and breathe our music and are willing to do anything for it, even walk all the way down to Hollywood Boulevard. to play outside in front of people, that’s just the spirit we have“.
“Been Lovin’ You” is the last track on the NOW compilation album that went in stores everywhere on February 5.
Nicky Davey is the only artist unsigned to a major label to be featured on NOW 57.
The duo is working on new material and will release a new EP in Spring 2016.
