Peking Duk Drops New Music Video for “Honest” featuring Slayyyter
- Australian electronic music duo Peking Duk has dropped a new music video for “Honest”.
The duo teamed up with American pop singer-songwriter Slayyyter on the track.
The song was released on February 4, 2022. It was written by Slayyyter, KLP, Reuben Styles and Adam Hyde.
“This song came together as the result of an impromptu jam we had after running 10ks and almost dying in the process,” Peking Duk's Adam Hyde said of the song. “We headed straight to the studio from the run covered in sweat with an hour to jam before we had a show and I had an idea to loop Reuben picking a single note on an electric guitar over and over, so Reubo added in a bunch of weird chords to pluck to then eventually we removed the chords and laid down the drums.”
- The duo continued, “We then headed to the show and realised there was some fuego inside of the idea we had created and there was only one person to call to take it to the next level – KLP. She came in the next day and completely brought the instrumental bed to life. We wrote the lyrics alongside the theme that the music created – a sweaty journey through thunder, mountaintops, marching to the drums and chanting as we follow each other. Slayyyter was down to jump on board and add her vocals to the mix and we couldn’t be more stoked with the magic that we now get to share with the world. Play it loud and scream it proud.”
Slayyyter said, “I loved this song immediately when I heard it and was happy they wanted me to be on the track. When you close your eyes and listen to it, it feels like you’re transported to a club or festival.”
