Cots – Moonlit Building [Music Video]

Today the Montreal-based solo project of composer, singer, and guitarist Steph Yates who goes by Cots dropped the music video for Moonlit Building.
The leading single is taken from the upcoming EP of the same name which comes out on January 25, 2023 via Boiled Records.
A haunting cinematic experimental folk pop tune.

About the track by Steph:
“Moonlit Building” deepens the beautiful, somber, mysterious elements of Yates’s songwriting. Where Disturbing Body weaves elements of bossanova together with jazz and classical, Cots’s askew folk takes on a cinematic noir quality with Fairfield’s accompaniment: her crystalline voice and nylon guitar devolving in unison with his gravely baritone, cavernous guitar, and eroding rhythm.

Yates says: “I have long admired Olivier’s rhythmic sensibility and his knack for moodiness in production, and felt he might be a good match for this set of songs. Working in-studio together was collaborative and experimental: trying things out, trading off instruments, seeing what stuck.”

“Moonlit Building” is accompanied by a music video created with director Sarafina Bortolon-Vettor and “a small crew of pals,” wherein Yates is the protagonist of a surreal cinema noir-inspired scene. The tension of the unseen and the unknown fits the song’s im/balanced, decelerating beat.
