Daley comes though with a day-in-the-life video for his latest single “Look Up,” off his stellar Days & Nights LP – produced by none other than Pharrell. OKP is proud to premiere the visual set for a track we first placed our ears on roughly this time last year, when we were utterly took by these blissful slow-churning sonics, lush with ’90s r&b sentiments and a nocturnal lull, yet still providing enough bounce to the ounce to give the two-steppers something to rock with.
Pharrell’s groove has that instant-recognition feel of a song you know you must have heard before–with genes that lay somewhere between an updated take of Claudja Barry‘s “Love For The Sake Of Love” and Toto‘s iconic music nerd love jones “Georgy Porgy.” It’s all filtered through Skateboard P’s immaculately clean r&b chops and Daley’s vocal takes the melody to totally new heights–especially on the levitating chorus. The end result draws us fully into Daley’s journey as documented in the candid imagery (and the shouts of “Daley! Daley!” from the crowds in the intercut live footage don’t hurt either).
The soaring UK crooner’s solo debut Days & Nights LP dropped in February to much acclaim and has been in our ears ever since. Step into the studio, onto the stage and into the life of Daley in the latest set of visuals for “Look Up” down below and be sure to keep your ear to the ground, as we’ll be sure to bring you his latest.
