Keli Holiday, (the side Project from Peking Duk’s Adam Hyde) returns today with the release of his magnetic sophomore single Where You Feel out now via Sony Music Entertainment Australia and BMG. Unearthed on a sunny day in Los Angeles, Where You Feel is anchored by a euphoric singalong hook and chronicles the idyllic Summer day through its infectious pop-rock melody and shimmering dance beats.
This new release directly follows Keli Holiday’s recent debut single We Don’t Have To Know and is another dreamy ode to the bubbling energy and sounds of the West Coast of America. Through Adam’s creative lense:“Where You Feel is sweet Mexican cola in a song, it’s the sweat dripping from your cheeks, it’s day drinking in the streets of sunny California.”
Co-written with fellow Australian and multi-instrumentalist Alex Lahey, Adam reveals “I added the salt and she added the sugar. I recorded the guitar chords and it felt right, without an ounce of force – it all fell in to place and felt right.”
To elevate the electric sounds of Where You Feel, Keli Holiday has today also shared the official music video directed by Taylor Bonin.
“I shot the clip with my good friend and creative mastermind Taylor Bonin. I came up with the idea of a run and gun style shoot where I belt the song out of a speaker whilst singing and dancing along the Venice boardwalk – he loved the idea and nailed it.”
Shacked up in his bedroom following an intense two month North American Tour, Adam got to work and created an impressive 12 tracks in four weeks. Upon sharing them with good friend Thomas Stell (aka Golden Features), Thomas then shared the project with Adams’ long-time idol, KIM from iconic Australian duo The Presets. In the words of Adam “KIM and I tightened up the dusty recordings and made them shine.”
It’s been a busy starts to 2021 for Adam who’s been hard at work on Keli Holiday, following a huge 2020 with Peking Duk, which included their massive dance floor collaboration Nothing To Love About Love with The Wombats and the anthemic single Move featuring Alisa Xalayith of The Naked and Famous. Move was the follow up to Peking Duk’s 2019 ARIA certified GOLD single Sugar with fellow Australian Jack River, as well as Ur Eyez along side Al Wright of Cloud Control . The band also spent months on the road taking their tour ‘The Biggest Tour Ever…So Far’ to over 50,000 Australians, including a sold out Hordern Pavilion in Sydney.
As one half of Peking Duk, Hyde is an ARIA Award winner who has amassed over 350 million streams globally, accredited over 1.5million ARIA units and is accredited 10 x Platinum. Peking Duk have taken their live show far beyond Australian borders, performing to sold-out crowds in venues and festivals across the US, UK, Asia and Europe.
Fans can expect plenty more tunes from Keli Holiday in 2021, something sure to keep the Peking Duk fans at bay before new music drops later this year.
“This is the second taste of the holiday and I can’t wait to share what else is to come very soon. x”
