FRESH: ‘Breakup Sex’ – Duchess

Duchess ‘drops’ “Breakup Sex”!

London based singer/songwriter Duchess has dropped he latest single, “Breakup Sex”. With this release, she also announces news of her debut EP, “Bad Girl”, which will be out in early 2021, with “Breakup Sex” being the first track taken from the project. The EP will boast a variety of songs and themes driven from a strong female’s POV.

Speaking of the release, Duchess explains: “I felt like this was the perfect single to announce my debut EP, as this song best represents the artist that I am becoming. The EP will explore sexuality, dominance, vulnerability, power and everything that makes you BAD – in the best way of course!”. This electro-pop banger contains a heavy dose of sexual energy, and drips with lustful desire. Teaming up with co-writer and producer Patch Boshell, the pair’s chemistry in the studio is on show once again as Duchess’ impressive vocal performance and sultry melodies are skilfully set to Patch’s explosive dark-pop production, resulting in a catchy and sexy vibe.

Duchess enlightens us further: “We are such a strong team when we create together, and the process is such an enjoyable experience. We both understand what I want to deliver in my music and this track came about through us exploring different narratives”. Lyrically, Duchess pulls much from her relationship experiences and “Breakup Sex” is no exception. Duchess adds: “It’s based on a previous experience of mine where the foundations of our whole relationship revolved around the sexual chemistry and nothing else. The narrative of wanting to leave someone but being sucked back into this immense sexual chemistry, is something we all have or know someone who has experienced this in life”.

“Breakup Sex” follows her previous single, “Close”, which kicked off a series of releases from the rising pop starlet this year. To date, Duchess has released five original singles and has also written for a variety of artists, with one of those tracks gaining a premiere with Billboard.com and amassing over one million streams. Her single “Breathe” was created to help raise awareness for domestic violence cases and she champions the importance of expression from a strong and confident female’s POV in her music, tackling issues such as bullying, body image and mental health. “Breakup Sex” represents a new chapter in Duchess’ journey, as she looks forward to more collaborations, releases and visual content in the lead up to her debut EP in 2021.

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
