London-based rising soul R&B artist Taloula is back with a new official music video for ‘Quick Fix Love’, taken from her debut EP ‘The Evolution of Taloula’
About Taloula Video For “Quick Fix Love”:
Directed by Taloula and Jack Thompson (Ghetts, The Prototypes) the striking new visual sees Taloula and dancers Josh Denyer, Darius Drooh and Camille Corgeron, perform a beautifully choreographed aerial dance that brings feelings of emotional dependency to life. Taloula writes:
Taloula shares, “This video was a huge challenge for me, personally as it was my first time directing a music video, and also as we technically chose to do a single shot with a film camera. With Zack we imagined these sequences highlighting the dependence on others. The intensity of the movement shows the hold people can sometimes have over you.”
I talk about how I’ve always been dependent on others, whether in my romantic or professional life, putting aside my opinions and needs. Subconsciously, I never allowed myself to think for myself, always needing the approval or direction of others.”
Co-produced with Taloula and Grammy nominated Doja Cat collaborator Linden Jay, the ‘The Evolution of Taloula’ EP sees the rising star tackle identity and a search for truth to a stirring and eclectic backdrop of smooth neo-soul and R&B.
The track has already seen support in Spotify’s New Music Friday UK and Fresh Finds UK/IR playlists after featuring in Taloula’s debut EP last month, alongside other highlight tracks ‘Find My Way’, ‘Keep on Tryin’’ and ‘Ready For This Moment’.
Taloula crafts a contemporary neo-soul signature, merging classical guitar with elements of soul R&B that draws influence from artists such as Lauryn Hill and Stevie Wonder. As the daughter of a professional singer with Yemenite roots, she grew up around music before she was even born, and taught herself to play the guitar and piano from the age of 12.
She was previously known as ‘TAL’ after an immense career with Warner Music France – releasing 4 studio albums and collaborating with the likes of Wyclef Jean and Sean Paul. Now living in London, Taloula decided to shift completely and come back to her musical roots.
