CloudKid Presents Apollo On The Run - Pay For It (ft. TEYA)
Though he’s not new to music by any means, UK-based Apollo on the Run releases his first track on the label and under a new project name, giving a fresh feeling to his artistry–Apollo acting as a vehicle to release music fused from of all the best bits of pop, rock and trap combined. On ‘Pay For It,’ there is an evident combination of hard hitting trap drums, dark piano, metal guitars, all while featuring a spectacular vocal performance by up and coming Austrian vocalist — with some big news to share soon — TEYA.
TEYA says of the song. “Narratively, it’s a cheating-story. The protagonist has to pay for a mistake not made by them. They never break hearts, but now they have to heal their own broken heart. In essence, the song is tackling the unfair nature of that whole situation.”
»...now they have to heal their own.«
Music from the heart of the original Gotham City, Apollo On The Run is the brainchild of UK producer and songwriter Jordan Round. Inspired by early 2000’s Deftones and Slipknot songs and sounds, and fused with modern pop, trap R&B like Santino, Le Saint and Doja Cat, these artists helped shape his vision for a fresh new sonic canvas for him. Obtaining over 35 million streams on his co-writes for other artists, Apollo, real name Jordan Round, is now showing the world his own artistic vision. Austrian vocalist, TEYA is the featured artist on the track. When she was 12 years old, the athlete-turned-singer left her tennis career to pursue music. Apart from playing the saxophone in a jazz orchestra, she says it was her theatre experience that made her confident and ready for the stage. Down the line, she began writing her own songs and working in proper music studios. In 2020, TEYA officially became a songwriter for other artists, frequenting songwriting camps for dance music, where she wrote a song for pop star Alexandra Stan, and Eurovision camps. Her edgy pop sound, red & black aesthetic and sharp, direct songwriting is now an established part of TEYA in the music scene and she’s ready to put herself center stage.
