With many hits under her catalogue, Elley Duhé drops a new single ‘Kids Of The Night’ featured along with an official video
Elley Duhé is set for a prolific second half of 2021. Arriving with a striking video, the doomful cut is an exciting statement of intent from an artist set for big things. Speaking on the release, she states:
The new single KOTN is a riotous swell that reveals elements of the darker side of my life experiences and those of my friends. “Sleep with the 1 eye O” is the overall message – sleep with one eye open meaning your third eye.
I feel like we’re all just hanging on to the planet for dear life,” says singer-songwriter Elley Duhé as she surveys the crazy world she’s about to share new music with. “It’s just a ride. These are very strange times, but it’s always been strange.”
Born in Alabama and raised in small towns around there and Mississippi, the young Elley’s formative years were spent surrounded by music lovers. “You’re just always being influenced if there’s always someone playing something – be it a song they wrote or just one of their favourite records. I grew up around blues, rock, alternative, classical, country, pop, hip-hop. I got a good dose of everything.”
Empowered by her newfound creative voice and having soaked up the sounds and the soul of the south, Duhé could feel that her ambition was calling her elsewhere. “I had no idea how I was going to make it happen,” she admits. “I just believed it was going to happen. Every time I came to a crossroads of opportunity, I would just go for it – whatever it was.”
Elley shares, “People that connect with me are friends now,” she says. “My fans get it – I’m here for them. That’s what I was made for, to be in their lives, even if it’s in a small way through a song. It’s what I’m supposed to do. I’m spiritual, so for my whole life I’ve had this knowing about music. When I see the streaming numbers, it’s just a reminder of the impact and that the knowing is right. It’s not like I had a delusional dream, it’s really happening.”
