Kayah Duen’s Debut Single, “Stay Alright” to Be Released September 18th on Tape Records

Kayah Duen Stay Alright
Kayah Duen is a 5 piece indie pop/rock band from Sydney. With a wide range of influences including Josh Pyke, Death Cab for Cutie and Bombay Bicycle Club, Kayah Duen create a satisfying blend of upbeat acoustic guitar, catchy hooks and funk filled bass lines.

Starting out in high school, the band was originally a 4 piece with Jamie on vocals and guitar, Seen on lead guitar, Jesse on bass and Pete on the drums. The quintet was complete in 2014 when Nat filled the Nat-shaped hole in the band. Her delicate voice, keyboard and tambourine skills have undoubtedly added a new dimension. Comprising of your typical mix of Aussie, Chinese, Dutch and Scottish blood, the band have bonded over their mutual love and respect for cheap Thai food.

The past year has been a busy yet exciting time for the group. They have gained immense performance experience in 2014 playing at Manning Bar, Hermann’s Bar and at Sydney Uni’s annual Verge Festival. The band were also guests on the Sydney Uni’s radio station SURG FM. This year has seen Kayah Duen work on their debut single ‘Stay Alright’ with renowned Sydney producer, Michael McGlynn, who has worked on the exciting projects of Little May and L- Fresh The Lion.

‘Stay Alright’ was recorded, mixed and produced by Michael McGlynn at Vienna People Studios, Annandale NSW.

The foundations of this debut single were laid from the very genesis of Kayah Duen. Written by Jamie (vocals & guitar) in high school, for lack of a better name, the song was humorously titled ‘Capo 5’. Fine-tuned for over 2 years, ‘Stay Alright’ is the product of enormous critique and refinement. Colourful and full of energy, ‘Stay Alright’ is a fun indie pop track. On top of its catchy hooks and punching pulse, are words which uncover what it truly means to care and to love our fellow neighbours.
