Dua Saleh, serpentwithfeet Combine On ‘unruly’

Breathtaking in its boundless creativity...

Dua Saleh and serpentwithfeet align on new single ‘unruly’.

An artist who crosses multiple disciplines, Dua Saleh is perhaps best known as the breakout star of Sex Education, with their arc dominating the show’s final season.

The Sudanese-American artist is also a potent musician, quietly building a catalogue with deep individuality. Merging electronics with fragments of alt-R&B, Dua also leans into their Sudanese heritage, exposing this in different ways.

Recently contributing to Travis Scott’s internationally successful album ‘UTOPIA’, Dua is now ready to kick off their next chapter. New single ‘unruly’ tears up the rulebook, its soulful radiance gleaming amid the finely toned production.

A merger of two remarkable talents, serpentwithfeet is able to add something distinctive to Dua Saleh’s music, perfectly complimenting their approach.

“Something about his voice is so captivating,” says Saleh. “I think our connection musically is queerness, being able to have that against-all-odds connection with somebody where we may have had to resist our identity initially when we were younger. There’s a power that queerness holds for both of us.”

Tune in now.
