CloudKid Presents Ally Ahern - NEW HOE
Singer-songwriter and vocalist, Ally Ahern’s next single with CloudKid, ‘NEW HOE,’ is a hyper-pop track also acting as a happy, confident, empowering women’s anthem. The song also features some classic musical theatre influences that any theatre-kid, including Ally herself, would recognise.
Ally says of the song, “I had powerful women inspirations for this track, including, Charli XCX, Melanie Martinez, MARINA, Coco & Clair Clair. ‘NEW HOE’ is a confidence anthem inspired by when I was 14 and transferred schools. It was a tiny, farm school with 30 people and three boys that were in my grade all had crushes on me, so naturally it all went to my head. The song is essentially about showing up to school as a young teen to steal the mean girls’ boyfriend and take over as queen bee. Sonically, we brought in my musical theatre background in quite a bit and meshed that with modern, hyper pop. I hope everyone who listens to the song has the urge to dance and sing along.”

Close your eyes, peer into the future and you will see a strange, pig-tailed girl named Ally dressed in the brightest colors in the crayon box. Ally’s music acts as her own personal, yet public diary, ranging from breaking her mother’s rib during childbirth to getting expelled from middle school to overcoming late-stage Lyme disease. Much like her life experience, her artistry sits somewhere between a soap opera and a surreal comedy. Her music has the energy of a tween on a sugar rush and the perspective of your older, wiser grandma sharing advice on her front porch. With Ally’s entrancing voice and the multitude of instruments that she tickles – drums, piano and guitar – she sets the rulebook on fire and fuses genres together. Wrapping her stories in humorous lyrics and catchy melodies, she encourages those willing to risk normalcy and embrace their inner misfit. Aside from her own project, Ally has written songs for global superstars such as Kylie Minouge, Apink and Tove Stryke, as well as releasing collaborations with DJs such as LVNDSCAPE, Firebeatz and Lodato. ‘NEW HOE,’ out NOW on CloudKid!
