EMERGING STAR BAELY RELEASES VIDEO FOR DEBUT SINGLE ‘TALKING TO THE WALLS’

Rising talent ​BAELY has released his debut single ​’Talking To The Walls’ via ​AWAL,​ accompanied by a gripping video.

Riddled with sharp, punchy synths and a distorted bassline, the track closely compliments the song’s subject matters that touch on obsession, addiction and a breakdown in communication.

The intense electro-R&B track is produced by ​Marco Bernardis​, with additional production and mix by Grammy award-winning ​Tyler ‘Lophiile’ Acord (H.E.R. – ‘Best R&B Album’) – both 2 thirds of the much-lauded ​Radiant Children​. The song was engineered by ​Prash ‘Engine-Earz’ Mistry​, who was also Grammy-nominated this year for his album ​Symbol and holds collaborations with ​Jorja Smith and The Prodigy​, to name a few.

The stylish visuals – directed by ​Jordan Stephens – see ​BAELY located in a derelict building eagerly in search of an elusive female character played by dancer and model, ​Demi Rox​. The video metaphorically captures the struggle of being stuck and in love with the idea of a person, but alludes to a relationship that is ultimately toxic and confining.

BAELY was raised as part of a musical family with some of his biggest influences being legendary figures like ​Stevie Wonder​, ​Marvin Gaye​, and ​Donny Hathaway​, and more contemporary influence coming from the likes of ​D’Angelo​, ​Miguel​ and ​The Internet​.

For the past couple of years, ​BAELY has honed his skills behind the scenes, writing and collaborating with an incredible roster of producers and artists alike. This, coupled with opportunities to work as a backing vocalist for ​Kwabs​, ​Farr​, ​Jordan Rakei and ​Will Heard has helped prepare him for his own solo career.

During this period to date, he has often been in the studio with ​Radiant Children – Recently having guest vocalled on ​Tyler Acord​’s debut single ​’You’ve Changed’ released under ​Bluenote Records​, and ​Aston Rudi​, who is known for his work with ​Ray BLK and ​Anais​. Furthermore, ​BAELY has enjoyed sessions and collaborations with notable names such as ​Fred Cox​, ​MXXWLL​, ​Linden Jay​, ​Will Heard​, Jordan Rakei​, ​Zach Witness​, ​Duke Dumont and ​Jarreau Vandal to name a few, and is now ready to flourish as a solo artist, preparing for a breakout year that will include more singles, an EP and live performances.

‘Talking To The Walls’​ is out now.
