“Touch Me” is the second single off of I’m Desperate For You by Motteo

As described by the artist, “Maybe you know this pattern as well as I do: you go out on countless dates and happy hours and house parties and coffees for months/years and yet you still go home alone feeling unwanted. Eventually, you settle for dispirited promiscuity with someone you’ve met online.  The modern dating cycle. Anyway, these songs are a sort of articulation of that loneliness and angst. I’d call it the modern deficit of intimacy.”

Music and Lyrics: Motteo

Produced by: Devin Arne & Motteo

Motteo is an emerging alt-pop artist releasing his first EP, I’m desperate for you, in summer 2019. Set to punchy synth textures with catchy pop melodies, Motteo writes about a deficit of intimacy. Fascinated by intimacy and relationships, the artist writes about his experience and what he’s witnessed in modern dating and social/online life.

I worked with Motteo in NYC in late 2018 developing his demos into fully produced songs. I also produced the vocal recording sessions and edited and mixed the EP’s vocals.

The first single off the EP is “Desperate”, which explores anxious longing for lost love.
