New York-based songwriting and production pop-duoLoote – made up of Emma Lov and Jackson Foote drop their brand new single today,“Your Side Of the Bed.” The breathless, synth-driven track was written, they reveal, “from a very personal, very real place. Though the lyrics are melancholy, it isn’t just a sad break up song, but more so a celebratory ‘F**k You’ song about moving on, and about the feelings you still have when you get out of a relationship. Some good, some bad, all at the same time.”
“Your Side Of the Bed” follows up Loote’s previously released singles “Out Of My Head” and “High Without Your Love” which together have amassed over 55 millionglobal streams to date. Most recently, Loote was featured in “Wait” by Danish DJ Martin Jensen, which has earned over 25 million streams; watch the music video HERE.
Loote has arrived on the strength of co-writing and co-producing their own material as well as singles for some of today’s biggest artists, among them the massive double-platinum song “No Promises” by Cheat Codes featuring Demi Lovato, whose VIDEO boasts over 107 million views.
Within the framework of the super-talented Loote, Emma’s singer-songwriter background and Jackson’s production technique come together in fresh and unexpected ways. “What you’re hearing,” says Jackson, “is a combination of two personalities, and where they meet in the middle.” 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 that sets all their tracks apart. “High Without Your Love,” for example, is a stripped-down summer anthem. Jackson’s minimal, expertly restrained production pushes the song’s intimacy to the forefront, allowing Emma’s growling vocals to shine.
The two met in a college songwriting class when they were randomly paired for a homework assignment. “The chemistry just clicked,” recalls Jackson. “We immediately had a good work flow.” They wrote their first songs together, secured a music publishing deal with Universal (through a joint venture with SRP), and immediately began working closely with other New York songwriters and artists. After writing a handful of songs for other artists and producing remixes for Mike Posner, Shawn Mendes, and LANY tracks (to name a few), Jackson and Emma decided it was time to step out from behind the scenes.
At Island, the vibrant and hard-working duo have the ideal platform to share their collaborative efforts. They want their music to help people feel, whether it’s hyping someone up as they walk down the street, or giving someone the confidence to make the first move. “We talk about things you’re not supposed to talk about or don’t necessarily know how to articulate,” says Jackson. “Music does that,” adds Emma. “It says what people can’t or don’t say.”
