A prominent bowed strings accompaniment to the doubled voice of Alto Kay, otherwise known as Keian Barton, is an emotional piece that allows us a chance to reminisce and feel a strong sense of nostalgia. The lyrics are romantic and the melody wanders to create a sense of compatibility between the instrumentals while Keian Barton sings about how “she is a whisper in the mist”.
Alto Key is a British indie folk artist, created by singer-songwriter Keian Barton. Barton composes each song at home in London, and works with musicians around the world to put the pieces of the puzzle together. Alto Key’s emphasis on recording with real instruments make for a warm acoustic sound. With touches of upbeat pop elements, each song masterfully blends beautiful orchestral tones with raw, emotional lyrics.
