St. Lucian-born, London-bred electronic artist Poté has already impressed audiences with his unique, culture-merging sound, fusing global elements with his love for intricate drum and percussion work.
Now he’s back with latest cut ‘Lonely’. Atmospheric samples, percussion and beats build to a dance-floor-ready crescendo, flanked by woozy synths and soulful vocals adding extra intensity and mood to the deep house backdrop.
The video, directed, shot and edited by by Alex J Corona, is equally atmospheric, placing the artist deep in the forest, emphasising a deep sense of isolation, while swirling camera angles build tension along with the track's percussion.
It’s the next in a string of exciting releases for Poté. ‘Rose’ came out in January, garnering support from the likes of Annie Mac, Benji B, Bonobo, and, Toddla T and more. "Rose is an open conversation on love,” he said of that track.
“Magnificent and grand as the great moments often are, there are thorns and sometimes even loneliness.”
