Reaching Out is a song by UK Electronic duo Nero from their debut album Welcome Reality. It was released as the sixth single from the album on 16 December 2011, peaking at number 92 on the UK Singles Chart and number 9 on the UK Dance Chart.
A music video to accompany the release of “Reaching Out” was uploaded to YouTube on 25 November 2011 at a total length of 2 minutes and 57 seconds.
The video heavily references the opening sequences for 80’s TV series, such as Miami Vice and Kojak by using original stock footage to build a TV title sequence narrative, suggestively set in Miami or a similar beach-city. The creators also add ludicrous typography and clunky, over-the-top transitions to match.. The video also stars all members of Nero (including Alana Watson), as well as a guest appearance by Hall.
