The story of the song began with a drum machine and a doo-wop vibe, in the world of synth bedroom pop. The song was taken to the studio with producer Omar Velasco of the group Amo Amo to bring it to its fullest form. The message of the song is finding love and connection in the virtual realm. The dialogue of romance is perpetually shifting, now more than ever in these times. Our love is in quarantine, sending a DM of sweet silver linings.
Nicky Sparkles is a Los Angeles based producer and performer. Previously Nicky has collaborated with artists like Nicolas Jaar, Samantha Urbani and Buzzy Lee. Undeniably sounding reminiscent of Janet Jackson and Prince, he continues to serve boogie-funk for the future.
And armed with falcetto goodness, Nicky embarks on treks of decadence and vision, inviting you along for all times.
