Birmingham band Saint Alto have released their debut single.
Out via city label Static Caravan (who’ve previously released material by Victories At Sea, amongst others), the double-A side is entitled Coming / Feel.
Available via major streaming platforms, it’s also available as a limited edition seven inch vinyl single (250 copies only).
Discussing the track, vocalist / guitarist Phil Barber said:
“It’s sort of a concept single in that each track is about the moments immediately before a relationship begins, and then the moments immediately after a relationship ends, respectively.
“So Coming is about that anticipation of something new, full of potential; and Feel is about the aftermath, when it hasn’t gone to plan and you’re temporarily broken on the other side.”
The alternative folk quartet – who’ve opened for Idlewild, Horse Feathers and Liela Moss and appeared at Moseley Folk Festival – released the track on 28 March 2020.
Sadly, Covid-19 restrictions put paid to their plans for a launch gig at The Night Owl, but they’re presently investigating ways in which they can promote the single during lockdown.
