Australia’s favourite duo, Peking Duk, have today released their new single, Wasted via Sony Music Entertainment Australia. The duo has also shared the official music video for the track, featuring charming synchronised dancing from Peking Duk’s very own, Adam Hyde and Ruben Styles.
Sonically propelled by Peking Duk’s renowned production flair, Wasted is another signature pop-infused-electronic dance delivery from the duo. The track features Adam’s raspy vocals, and skilfully integrates live musical elements amidst the recording to match the duo’s new live show, an epic spectacle to which Peking Duk explosively unveiled during their festival sets at Splendour In The Grass and at Falls Festival in 2017.
Wasted joins a solid collection of recent releases from the duo, directly following 2017 ARIA Song Of The Year and 3x certified Platinum hit, Stranger featuring Elliphant, the certified Platinum single, Fake Magic featuring Aluna Francis, and the recently certified Platinum track, Let You Down featuring Icona Pop, making it the sixth Peking Duk single to be accredited Platinum or above, an absolute credit to the duo’s infectious musicality and production talent.
Peking Duk’s new dance floor anthem, premiered on radio yesterday on triple j’s Thursday Drive with Gen and Lewis and comes hot off the heels from triple j’s annual Hottest 100 countdown last weekend. Let You Down placed at #20, and Fake Magic took it all home coming in at #12 on the countdown.
Having generated over 150 million streams worldwide, accomplishing six certified Platinum singles, and recently winning the 2017 ARIA Award for Song Of The Year, the year of the Duk is excitedly upon us! Peking Duk recently delivered their captivating live show to audiences in London, Canada and Asia, and now, the boys will return home to share their thrilling new live set as they headline Mountain Sounds Festival.
