Is this love? It’s definitely lovable, that’s for sure. For those who miss the days of releases topping the charts like Whitney Houston’s I Wanna Dance with Somebody, this upbeat disco, dance, and pop fusion offers a blast from the past. It matches the style of a high-tempo pop song but resonates with a form of pop that we don’t often get the opportunity to hear anymore. This is why I say it is like a blast from the past – there are elements that take you back to the pop icons of the 80s, 90s, and early 00s with its rush of positivity and a tempo that is not stopping anytime soon; it is a pleasant change from the current pop scene which can often feel repetitive.
Nathalie Miranda offers strong vocals with a really interesting tone to her voice that lends itself well to this style of song as well as showcasing her impressive range which spans 4-octaves. She adds soul to the baseline of Is This Love that keeps the song thrumming and keeps you wanting to dance along, all night long. Nathalie is a powerhouse singer-songwriter who has had previous successes, such as in 2020 with Catch-22 followed by her 70s rock/pop anthem Battle Scars in 2021, showcasing her ability to experiment with different genres and not be afraid to put her own stamp on the music industry.
This track was originally written whilst Nathalie was home-bound by the flu in 2015, however, thankfully she rediscovered this song last year and has given it the breath of life it needed to let us relive 80s pop with a modern flare. Is This Love releases on 11th February 2022 on all platforms alongside a music video with inspirations from Whitney Houston, Kylie Minogue, and Madonna – definitely one you don’t want to miss.
