It’s happened – ‘I Found Me’ from President Street has broken the top five in the UK Charts!
“It’s a tough game for an independent project like us” reads the gratitude-filled Instagram caption from this Australian duo, whose recent single ‘I Found Me’ has broken into not just the top twenty, but the top five of the UK Commercial Pop Charts.
This release comes following a busy year for this collective from down-under, as they have already been busy releasing a string of high energy and melodically driven singles, as well as touring around the UK with stripped-back, unplugged national tour. Now returning to the UK for the first time since then, and with a whole host of new songs written, produced and ready to perform, this release heralds in a new era of President Street.
Not content with mastering one genre, the duo has taken influences from all about to craft their own melting pot of “pop fusion”. ‘I Found Me’ makes use of an Americana-inspired lazy guitar riff to begin with, followed by a drum ‘n’ bass inspired groove, before finally introducing a vocal line which comes from pure pop. The mix is unlike anything in the charts right now, which has undoubtedly led to the song’s success so far.
