Alternative-pop artists Lexis Yelis and Couchsurf have shared their new collaborative single, “Between My Thighs” with a new music video available to watch now. “Between My Thighs” features the artists’ signature sound fused with R&B influences to create a sexy single that will have listeners immediately hitting replay. Fans can check out the single and watch the new music video now below.
On writing the new track, Lexis Yelis shares the inspiration for the sexy new single came from her own medical condition, “COUCHSURF and I wrote this track to a random YouTube beat and it became a favorite of ours to joke about throughout 2019. For the first 9 months of our relationship, we were unable to have penetrative sex due to a pelvic floor disorder so we wrote this track about how bad we wanted to fuck each other. When it came time to go into the studio, I knew it could be something great so I had COUCHSURF come along with me to record in Atlanta.”
Queer, cancer and quarantine, Lexis Yelis is no stranger to adversity. This East Coast Queen has been taking over the music industry from backstage for years as an integral part of the sustainability teams for Coachella, Stagecoach, Vans Warped Tour and more. Lexis got her start in theatre with the creation of Panic! The Musical (yes, a Panic! At The Disco Musical) which allowed her to segway directly into the music industry as a ghostwriter and collaborator. In 2019 Lexis was diagnosed with a rare form of T-Cell Lymphoma, which was the catalyst for her jump from behind the scenes to center stage. “I was done with waiting and honestly over the excuses I created for myself. I’ve learned that there’s no better time but the present to go after what you want and that’s what I’m trying to do everyday. I’ve decided to dedicate my life to making music and whether you love it or hate it, I’m going to do what makes me happy and that’s all that matters. “
Self described as America’s Bald Headed, Beard Bearing, Twisty Mustache Dream They Never Knew They Needed, COUCHSURF is not your everyday artist. From homeless to Harlem, he has not gone unnoticed. COUCHSURF has traveled the country performing everywhere from SEC colleges to Vans Warped Tour in 2018. He aims to inspire the world with positivity.
