Listen to the ode to Agyness

21 May 2009

Agyness has made no secret of her desire to break into the music industry, practically shunning Fashion Week to sing with the 5 O'Clock Heroes instead. But we wonder how she'll feel about the latest tune to hit the London dance floor – an homage to the supermodel herself. Her DJ friend Jodie Harsh has collaborated with Larry Tee to write a track entitled Agyness Deyn. ‘I first met Agy when she came down to my 23rd birthday party with Lily Allen. She was so fun and fabulous,' Jodie tells us. ‘So when I was in New York last summer hanging out with one of my favourite music producers Larry Tee, we were throwing around ideas and thought let's do a track together about the girl of the moment.' They wrote the lyrics in about three minutes and included lines like ‘she'll have her own line of jeans on the high street, they'll be skinny but sooo new-school, her style is idiosyncratic'. It was meant to be a cheeky track about the sometimes ridiculous nature of fashion. ‘I'm in the fashion world and I even studied it at university, but we're not solving cancer, it's not brain surgery. It's a crazy existence sometimes and we wanted to reflect that,' Jodie said about the seriously catchy, electro-pop tune. So what does Agy think of the track? ‘I don't have her email address, otherwise I would have sent it to her! It's not like we hang out all the time, or she's my best friend, but I hope she'll hear it and like it.' One person who has heard the tune is the super's best mate Henry Holland, whose famous slogan that emblazoned his tees three years ago –  ‘Flick your bean for Agyness Deyn' – is used in the chorus of the track. ‘He hasn't replied actually! I hope he isn't angry. After all, it was meant as a cheeky wink or nod to him,' Jodie revealed of the track, which will no doubt be played when her club night Circus moves to Matter at the O2 with special guest Siouxsie. So come on Henners, chillax. It's gonna be the song of the summer and it's all about the gorgeously gorgeous Agyness Deyn. What's not to love?! Listen to it here at
