If you’ve been a member of our beautiful Indie Top 39 family for a while now, you’ll know that we have a rather large soft spot for London-based indie singer/songwriter Alto Key. From speaking at our events to providing us with hit after hit, we just love the guy! A few days ago, he unleashed his brand new single called ‘wondrous life’, and it’s an infectious, feel-good, and upbeat tune that you simply need in your life right now. Inspired by the joys of love and life, the musician has bottled up all the positive vibes and optimistic energy that he could muster, and stuck them straight into ‘wondrous life’.
Alto Key holds a seriously impressive record when it comes to his TikTok presence – being named as the most duetted artist on the platform in the UK for 2021. He’s a musician who has truly embraced social media and the “new ways” of the music industry, and as far as we’re concerned, deserves all the praise and credit that comes his way!
‘wondrous life’ will put a smile on your face, a spring in your step, and a positive vibe to your day! INDIE TOP 39
What does the song mean to you?
I wrote ‘wondrous life’ to capture the joys of love and life in a “life flashing before your eyes” kind of moment, possibly at the end of your life. Ultimately, with so many things going on all over the world, I wanted to make a song crammed full of positive vibes and romantic energy about falling in love!
What are your favourite lyrics in the song?
“Tiny flat with the nine to five Got no cash but we’ll survive Tears a flood but we’re still floating” I love living in London, don’t get me wrong, but I think these words summarise the reality of living here. These words make me smile reminiscently and laugh.
What does success mean to you?
I feel most successful when my music has made someone feel something. Yes, big stats and numbers are cool, but when a song really connects with another person and makes them feel emotions – whether happy, sad or anything really – it brings me a lot of joy!
What would your life be like without music?
At this point, I’ve been making music for quite a few years and it’s a huge part of who I am. I let go of my emotions in my songs, and I find songwriting therapeutic. I’m also incredibly grateful that the songs mean something to other people and it becomes a part of their life too. I would certainly have less interesting things going on in my life if I didn’t have my music career, that’s for sure!
