Peking Duk have today released their brand new single Let You Down featuring Swedish electropop duo Icona Pop, through Sony Music Entertainment Australia. Peking Duk’s latest collaboration is a modern heartbreak melody and the first to feature vocals from one-half of the duo, Adam Hyde. Buy/Stream ‘Let You Down’ feat. Icona Pop Here
Flowing through the different stages of heartbreak, Peking Duk and Icona Pop have created the perfect break-up song for their generation. With razor-like synths and thundering drum beats, the electrifying rhythm in ‘Let You Down’ beautifully contrasts with both artist’s emotive vocals and sad lyrics.
Peking Duk talk about the inspiration behind the song: “It is loosely based off the story in the movie Candy from Heath Ledger’s perspective. We honestly just felt like the happy melodies would be far more interesting with a sad story through the lyrics. Weirdly, the story in Candy is far more relatable than it seems on first glance. Many people are actually in scenarios or relationships where they know they are bringing the other person down. This is the hard part; trying to tell them to leave so you don’t let them down.”
It has already been a big week for Peking Duk, receiving four ARIA Award nominations for Best Dance Release for ‘Stranger’ feat. Elliphant, Best Group, Best Live Act and Apple Music Song Of The Year for‘Stranger’ feat. Elliphant. Fans can vote for the Apple Music Song of the Year by playing their favourite song on Apple Music (HERE) or casting a web vote at ariaawards.com.au ahead of the 2017 ARIA Awards on November 28th.
