Alto Key

March 15, 2021

Alto Key is the definition of "indie artist" (ignore what anyone else says). He's been making 10/10* indie/alt-pop tunes in his London bedroom and with his online pals since 2018. Expect piano-driven vibes and emotive melancholy lyrics.

Tastemakers kinda like his stuff, so his songs have been played on various radio stations and podcasts including BBC Music Introducing, idobi Radio, Smile Radio and Soho Radio.

Alongside the music, he's an avid TikToker where he has amassed over 300K fans and 6M likes making musical comedy and quirky videos. He is currently independent but could always use a helpful hand if any are going spare on the black market. Anyone?

* your experience may differ, but is unlikely. Or at least Alto's mum thinks so.

Colourless is a powerful, emotive song that explores themes of identity and labels. Cinematic drums and tear-jerking strings accompany Alto Key’s stirring vocals. The song highlights the frustrations and fears of being perceived in a monochrome light, whilst encouraging listeners to be who they want to be. The artwork and music video echo this through the use of white face paint and black and white imagery. The relatable lyrics avoid pronouns and will particularly appeal to LGBTQ+ advocates.
