MUST LISTEN: HUSSY releases dope pop track ‘YLMD’
South East London artist HUSSY has released her new single ‘YLMD’ or You Let Me Down’. The bedroom pop track consist of a sick guitar intro, addictive vocals, relatable lyrics, and a drum heavy melody with a catchy chorus. The song will also include a self-directed/ made video that will be released next year along with her spring 2020 EP. She not only sings but she plays, records and layers all instrumentation herself in her home studio.
Sophie stated this via press release of the track
“This time around I really wanted to up what I’ve been doing sonically. Before now I’d been recording nearly everything at home but went to a proper studio to redo some elements from the original version. The whole process became a reaffirmation of how/ why I make music the way I do. Playing everything myself enables me to immerse myself in the creative process and in the end became a form of self empowerment, something I wanted to prove to myself I could continue to do. ”
“I could almost say at this stage YLMD has become like a love letter to self-empowerment and things going wrong. You can guess once you hear the lyrics, YLMD stands quite obviously for You Let Me Down. I wrote it a few years ago, and feels like its almost taken on a new meaning for me now than when I wrote it. Originally it was the frustration over seeing loved ones self destruction. Ultimately though, it’s a journey of reflection and self-empowerment. Now, this song has become a reminder in how trusting yourself is so important to me.”
“Musically I wanted to make it very dramatic and fun, inspired by new wave ballads with some messy conflicting noise underneath. “
