There’s little more magical than a true unveiling of the heart, and Sofia Camille and hü’s refreshing duet, released last fall, is nothing if not utterly heartfelt. A dazzling indie pop indulgence, “talk to you” shines with stunning force as the artists channel intimate emotion and passionate energy into an addictive, irresistible upheaval.

talk to you – Sofia Camille
trying to keep myself busy
so I don’t wonder if you miss me
but now I’m feeling kind of dizzy
oh, I wonder if you miss me
say I’m good, say I’m fine,
take the edge off this one time
say I’m good, say I’m fine,
take the edge off this one time

Released November 27, 2020, “talk to you” hits hard and leaves a lasting mark. The duet of Tallahassee, FL genre-bending singer/songwriter Sofia Camille and Los Angeles-based alt-pop artist hü revels in the throes of heartache and longing as the pair weave a majestic, mesmerizing tapestry of buoyant synths, bright memories, and painfully bittersweet nostalgia. Long nights spent blurring time with booze come to the fore in what can almost feel like a celebration of heartbreak and loneliness – but peel back the layers, and it’s clear we’re only smiling to mask the pain.

But just because something is hiding (or dwelling in) sadness doesn’t mean it can’t be a joyous, invigorating experience. Expansive and expressive, “talk to you” encompasses a range of feelings in its short, but thrilling run. Camille rises to an incredible fever pitch in the song’s intimate, anthemic shout-out-loud chorus:

oh, I just need an excuse
to try to talk to you
don’t usually drink,
but I drank the whole bottle
I can’t recall how I got to the bottom
I just need an excuse
to try to call you
don’t usually drink,
but I drank the whole bottle
don’t know what this is
but it feels like rock bottom

“‘talk to you’ inspires nostalgia and longing with its indie pop and soaring synths, transforming life into a movie,” Sofia Camille reflects in conversation with Atwood Magazine. The independent artist released her first song “Like I Do” in March 2019, and has quickly amassed an impressive, multifaceted collection of solo and collaborative songs. She and hü first met when the latter artist was touring as Quinn XCII’s keyboardist, and with more downtime due to the past year’s pandemic, the two finally had the chance to work together virtually.

The resulting duet is “deceptively feel-good,” capturing “two sides of a troubled relationship fueled by denial and an attraction that just ‘won’t go away,'” per Camille. Inner devastation, infatuation, obsession, and a somewhat stubborn perseverance combine in magnificent style to make a moment of utter submission: The good times won’t last, but this one seems to hold on for dear life to the very bitter end.

It’s the dizzying emotions of wondering why someone won’t leave you alone, but deep down just wanting them to stay.

While it’s clear the narrator’s relationship is plummeting to “rock bottom,” Camille and hü use their shared performance to reach incredible heights. “talk to you” in an inspiring burst of energy that refuses to abate; it gives, gives, and gives some more – ultimately leaving its listeners wide awake and ready for more.

While hü recently released the singles “in november” and “abstract girl,” Sofia Camille has yet to follow up “talk to you” – making it still as fresh a listen today as it was upon its initial release last year. Heartbreak never felt as magical as it does in this indie pop anthem.
