Home recording expert and multi-instrumentalist, Sophie Nicole Ellison, better known as dreampop act, Hussy, follows her series of notable singles from last year with new piece, YLMD, as the artist prepares for the release of an upcoming EP, expected Spring 2020.

With better production means as she has shifted from the DIY ways of her bedroom recordings to a proper studio, the new song finds the South East London-based creator at her most well-rounded and sharpest thus far, while retaining all this alt rock rawness which comes reminiscent of the nineties; grunge-inclined, a little noisy, yet very easy to take in and appreciate.

"This time around I really wanted to up what I’ve been doing sonically," Hussy comments on the track. "Before now I’d been recording nearly everything at home but went to a proper studio to redo some elements from the original version. The whole process became a reaffirmation of how/ why I make music the way I do. Playing everything myself enables me to immerse myself in the creative process and in the end became a form of self empowerment, something I wanted to prove to myself I could continue to do."

She continues, offering more insight on the song's inspiration and intent: "I could almost say at this stage YLMD has become like a love letter to self-empowerment and things going wrong. You can guess once you hear the lyrics, YLMD stands quite obviously for You Let Me Down. I wrote it a few years ago, and feels like its almost taken on a new meaning for me now than when I wrote it. Originally it was the frustration over seeing loved ones self destruction. Ultimately though, it’s a journey of reflection and self-empowerment. Now, this song has become a reminder in how trusting yourself is so important to me.

"Musically I wanted to make it very dramatic and fun, inspired by new wave ballads with some messy conflicting noise underneath."
