Hayley Smith and Simon Buxton from Dead Little Penny release new track U 4 Me from forthcoming debut album, Urge Surfing.
U 4 Me is a deeply personal and fluid piece of work penned by Hayley in 2013.
Basically, I felt like a total failure at life and love and I really needed to dig deep to look at that from a songwriting perspective. I’ve waited a few years to bring this out, and it just feels like the right time now - Hayley Smith
With an intense electro beat layered with ethereal synth hooks and fuzzed out bass, Hayley’s vocals shine with pained potency in an introspective song that reflects her lowest times.
“I wrote this song probably in what I would say the most challenging and low points of my life. In my 20’s, facing a divorce and a complete life change, I sat perched on the end of the spare bed at my mum’s house, and really got down to business and pulled out all my uncomfortable feelings"
Debut album Urge Surfing from this two-piece Auckland based electro/shoegaze band is due for release later this year.
