Quinn Oulton has teamed up with Moses Boyd for his single, ‘Clashing Colours’.
The South London based multi-instrumentalist, vocalist and producer’s latest track follows on from ‘Better’, ‘Royalty’ and ‘Sober’, and is a cut from his upcoming album ‘Alexithymia’, out via DeepMatter Records this May.
Quinn explains: “My album ‘Alexithymia’ dissects events from different relationships, whether family, friends, or romantic, presented as a single story from start to finish. Obsession, frustration, passion, false hope, grief, self-pity, helplessness, and acceptance are all part of this story. I wrote it in this way because I was trying to work out why I connect so much with sad or melancholic music, and I realised that maybe listening to that music was filling a hole that I didn’t know I had. It was comforting to hear somebody process their own troubles outwardly when I didn’t feel I had a way, or even a reason, to do so myself. Writing the album has been an extremely therapeutic process as I’ve been able to seek out difficult parts of my life that I’d buried because I couldn’t process them at the time.”
“I think a lot of people, particularly men, struggle to recognise and process their own emotions,” he adds. “It makes it very hard to share them with others, and it’s something that needs addressing to allow for healthier relationships with other people and yourself.”
