Lontalius (New Zealand’s Eddie Johnston) has shared his new single and video for ‘All I Wanna Say‘. Lontalius has also announced his signing to Partisan Records in the US and Pod / Inertia Music in Australia & New Zealand. His debut full-length will be released in early 2016.
Described by i-D as “beautiful, delicate, tender”, the imminently charming ‘All I Wanna Say’ video shows Johnston learning how to ride a bike with a friend as dusk fades into evening. The video’s images echo the song’s themes of trust and intimacy: a supportive hand; a gentle helmet adjustment; two headlights circling in the dark, each one searching for the other. His lyrics repeat this sentiment: “All I wanna say is it’ll be alright / and maybe I shoulda lied / All I have to offer is my love / it’s not enough / but boy, I’ll give you everything I’ve got.” Overall the piece captures the feeling of cool summer nights as they slide in to fall.
