‘Colourless’ is the latest single from London alternative-pop artist Alto Key. The powerful and emotive song explores themes of identity and labels, highlighting the frustrations and fears of being perceived in a monochrome light. The cinematic drums and tear-jerking strings accompany Alto Key’s stirring vocals, with the help of producer Joseph Wander (dodie and Tors), ‘Colourless’ is set to release March 6th.
Since bursting onto the scene back in 2018 with the release of his debut EP ‘Animals’ and follow up EP ‘Seas Unknown’ in 2019, Alto Key received great praise from BBC Introducing and was awarded Best Lyrics in Folk at the Indie Originals 2019 Music Competition.
Now, Alto Key returns with arguably his best release to date, encouraging his audience to be who they want to be. Speaking more on the track, Alto Key explained:
In its rawest form, ‘Colourless’ came about from frustrations I was feeling around my own path in life and how I am perceived. I put so much into my love of making music that I had received criticism and pressure in the past from others around me including friends and family. Simultaneously, I had also been becoming increasingly interested around how I wanted to define myself. I think in any case, nothing is black and white – nobody is colourless, and we should be able to feel free to show our true colours.
Alongside his original music, his fans also enjoy his raw piano/vocal covers and videos sprinkled with his patented sense of humour.
‘Colourless’ is set to release March 6th and will be available on all streaming platforms.
