Clyde Kelly drops wavy new single, 'Bands Up' (feat. selam.)
You know the drill, Clyde Kelly has become a blog favorite around here and we're thrilled to share with you the artists latest release, 'Bands Up'. The new track features Los Angeles producer, selam. and together the two rip apart this wavy new future pop/hip-hop instrumental. Clyde delivers some of his best work on the new release and if you're looking for something to turn up and vibe to, look no further.
“I wanted to make a track that was upbeat, happy, and banged, yet still encompassed my style as an artist. Making an optimistic chord progression, the trap drums, groove, and wavy synth pattern for me described a feeling of being on top, achieving what you want to do, killing it, and having the time of your life while doing it. I called the beat “Bands Up, Ran Up” and then sent it to Clyde who felt the same vibe, and the rest is history.”
With little promotional support and no major label involvement, he racked up 1M+ streams on Spotify within 4 months of its release (November 1st, 2016). The fan-favorite single, “Magic,” was featured on a video blog by Gary Vaynerchuk, and subsequently placed on two staple Spotify playlists, Discover Weekly and Hip-Hop Central. The song peaked at #9 on the Spotify Viral 50 chart.
