The New York-based pop duo comprising of Emma Lov and Jackson Foote who co-wrote and co-produced “No Promises” by Cheat Codes feat. Demi Lovato are back with their new single “Out of My Head.”
Written and produced by Emma and Jackson, this song is the first track to feature vocals by both as well. When speaking of the song, Loote describes it as “an emotional roller coaster. It’s about being stuck and weird and feeling like you can’t get out of your own crazy. And it’s an ode to that one person or thing you can rely on; you like that they get you out of that shit. The chorus is this celebratory moment that’s kind of a ‘thank you’ to them.”
Emma’s singer-songwriter background and Jackson’s production technique come together in fresh and unexpected ways, and their sound, as Jackson explains, “is a combination of two personalities and where they meet in the middle. We’re different in a lot of ways, and you can hear that in our music, but in a lot of ways we’re also very similar and you can pick up on that too.” The result is a confident sound that’s sexy, energetic, and inspired by many of today’s trailblazing artists. It’s undoubtedly poppy, but there’s a sense of craftsmanship and attention to detail apparent in all of their tracks that sets them apart.
Their first single “High Without Your Love,” with other 45 million streams, is “about that initial feeling of ‘I need you, I can’t get enough of you,” says Emma. It’s a sexy and catchy celebration of blinding infatuation; of the midpoint of being in love and being in lust. Jackson asserts the track was organic to write: “it took on a life of its own,” he says
The duo met in a college songwriting class when they were randomly paired up for a homework assignment. After writing a handful of songs for other artists and producing remixes for Mike Posner, Shawn Mendes, and LANY, LOOTE decided it was time to step out from behind the scenes.
