London based singer/songwriter Duchess has shared her latest single ‘Close ‘, and as we all face a period of uncertainty and self-isolation, the sentimental track feels like a warm hug with a loved one as we settle in for a time under the covers. Mixing classic pop songwriting with cutting edge production has become a hallmark of Duchess’ output – this time teaming up with producer and co-writer Patch Boshell, Duchess has delivered a deeply intimate vocal which echoes the personal sentiment of the subject at hand with lyrics that convey a devotion in a relationship, as she explains:
“I wanted to represent a connection that is so deep that being close isn’t close enough! I’m hoping people will listen to my track and enjoy a moment of closeness with loved ones. Especially during this unpredictable time where the world has to unite and remain safe at home, missing our loved ones.”
Having to overcome adversity at a young age, Duchess soon learned that music, dance, poetry and expression was the key to overcome the challenges that the world threw at her, explaining: “For me dance, poetry and music saved me – I ‘m so thankful for the passion I discovered when I needed it most to heal and learn to love myself again.”
‘Close’ represents a new chapter in Duchess’ journey – with more collabs, releases and music videos in the pipes for 2020.
