When I was in LA late last year I went to Peking Duk’s show alone. It was like, me and 200 college kids. It was so good.
They played a shitload of new music – but there was one I was humming along Sunset Blvd for days after. Just this one line. “I waaaaaaaaanna get wasted on youuuuuuuuuu!”
An instant earworm, Wasted is now out into the world and is a really exciting new step for The Duk and a really distressing sign that I’ll have this in my head for a further 9587 days. Gone is a drop – replaced with a proper pop chorus. No feature, Adam controls the whole vocal. This is the first Peking Duk release that establishes them as a ‘band’ of sorts – and a really fucking good one at that.
This is an anthem that’ll soundtrack US summer festivals, and late night drives for the rest of daylight savings here. I love it.
