Christy – Somebody Else Instead
Glaswegian singer-songwriter Christy has revealed his gorgeous new acoustic EP ‘Somebody Else Instead’, completed by a brand new single of the same name.
Opening with an acoustic version of ‘When We Get Old’, the EP offers a chill yet masterful display of Christy’s craftsmanship. The soft wail of ‘Forever’ continues the journey of a love lost and mourned, handing hope over to ‘A Better Place’ (mixed by Jonathan Gilmore [The 1975, beabadoobee, Rag’n’Bone Man]) with its lugubrious piano and closing with the heartwrenching, half-broken, vocals of ‘Somebody Else Instead’.
“‘Somebody Else Instead’, the title track of this stripped back acoustic EP, is a song I wrote that perfectly encapsulates the feeling I felt when I was trying to move on past a relationship,” says Christy. “I felt like I was just trying to replace them constantly. Then I had a thought, that when you are in a relationship, all you really do is waste your time with that person, so maybe that’s what love is, wasting your time with the right person but having the most fun doing nothing.” He continues. “This whole EP is my journey up to now of how I have felt about moving on. I hope everyone listens to this and hears every bit of emotion I have felt making it.”
