Q&A w/ Nick de la Hoyde

Nick de la Hoyde is back with his new single ‘Mirror Mirror’ so we thought it was a perfect excuse to invite him around to the Cool Try RSL for a feed. What will he choose from the buffet? Will his dessert be delicious? (Spoiler… IT IS). Enjoy.

What is your favourite track to perform live?

My current fav to sing live would be our un released song Thru 2 U.

This song is heaps of fun and aggressive with a dark vibe to it haha

 

Aside from other artists and music, what inspires you?

I am always inspired by things that happen throughout my day to day life.

I guess things like relationships or struggles that myself and everyone goes through each day become inspiration.

When you work so hard for something and you see the results.

 

What streaming sites do you think offer the most value to a band?

I would have to say the best streaming platform would be Spotify.

This platform seems to offer a lot for both signed and independent artists.

Although it is a good platform it is also a tricky one to work out the algorithm .

 

What is the first song you ever wrote and did it make it onto a release?

Haha this question makes me laugh because it reminds me of some of the first ever lyrics i have written.

I can assure you that the first one was definitely not released haha.

Although i cant remember too much about the stuff i wrote i do remember writing a song about aliens when i was living in Barcelona.

 

Fuck/Marry/Kill: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter?

This is very easy for me haha – Marry Instagram, Fuck Facebook and kill Twitter.

 

Favourite Simpsons episode? Discuss.

I don’t actually know the number or the names of the episodes, but i would have to say that one of my favs was the one where Lisa needed braces and homer had that song running through his head “Lisa needs brace, Dental plan” hahaha

 

Where are people able to hear your songs?

Absolutely everywhere haha. itunes, Spotify, Apple Music, Youtube, Soundcloud, Amazon.

 

What festival is #1 on your list that you’d love to play one day?

There are so many amazing festivals throughout the world but the one that sticks out the most would be Coachella.

The lineup is usually amazing and filled with incredible artists so hopefully one day ill be one of them haha

 

Are there any band photographers that you’re into and would love to be shot by?

At the moment I am really loving the style that Brooklyn Beckham is doing with his photos.

I would definitely like to do a shoot with him someday for sure!!

 

What’s the best show you’ve been to this year?

My fav show of the year so far would have to be Rolling Loud Festival in Miami.

Getting this opportunity to play on such a big and well respected HipHop stage was incredible.

If you haven’t been and you are heavily into HipHop music then i would recommend going.

 

 

Tell us 3 bands that we should be listening to/be keeping an eye out for?

At the moment I am listening to a lot of music from Brockhampton who are a rap group from Texas, if you have not heard of them you must check them out!!

 

A lot of people may already know Bazzi from his new song Mine that went viral!

But he has some amazing music that he has previously produced and I’m sure is on its way.

So keep an eye out for some new stuff from him which is dope.

 

And another artist I am listening to is NF,

Again you may have heard his song “let you down”

But I can assure you that’s not his only banger and i have had his recent album on repeat.
