corto.alto’s much anticipated debut album Bad With Names is coming October 6th through New Soil x Bridge The Gap, and yesterday he has released ‘EJS’, the fourth and final single from it. Speaking about the track, Liam Shortall, the prodigious multi-instrumentalist, composer and producer behind corto.alto, had this to say:
“I made this track originally as a beat when my girlfriend Esme moved into my house last year. I was in full album mode at the time and probably not being the most attentive partner to her. I originally had this track titled as ‘interlude’, but decided to retitled it to my partner’s initials after she left for south east asia for 2 months, whilst I sat in my freezing cold flat in Glasgow feeling sorry for myself, missing her. Exposing my feelings of loneliness, guilt from not being very attentive when she was around, codependency etc.”
‘EJS’ is offered with a video created by Esme Stewart. Watch it below.
