SONG PICK: La Poré – Headphones (Video)
Like with his previous single, “Right Track,” La Poré takes a widely known experience and spins it in his unique and utterly appealing way. It is impossible not to instantly feel the sonic beauty of “Headphones.” With its shimmering synths and La Poré’s gorgeous vocals, “Headphones” is as intimate as it is beautiful and relatable. Nick Samson, aka La Poré, wrote and produced “Headphones” alongside long-time collaborator Kyle Kanzigg. The first single from the upcoming EP out in Spring 2022. The track is accompanied by a psychedelic music video co-produced and shot by Matthew Faulkner and Devaughn Taylor of BetaWave Studios.
I asked Nick what he had in mind with “Headphones,” and he says:
“With the song and music video, I wanted to capture the experience of writing. I never know what’s going to happen or how I’ll feel. You go through self reflection as a person and artist. It’s a crazy journey, and usually you fail. But sometimes without warning it’ll click, and you find yourself so in tune with the music, that everything else filters out. Joy returns. Regardless of the context in which you are listening to music, it’s an escape, and it can be healing.”
