Hugo Cottu – “For All I Know”

“For All I Know” is a track played, recorded, and mixed by Hugo Cottu in his bedroom. Certainly a bedroom project by definition, though “For All I Know” packs an atmospheric punch that rivals major studio efforts. Hugo’s tranquil vocals — tonally reminiscent of Mac Demarco — accompany a nocturnal synth whir and placid percussion. The multi-layered vocal moment around 02:47 leads to a gorgeous, synth-tinged climax a few moments later, where Hugo’s vocals ascend from nonchalance to spine-chilling emotion. “For all I know,” Hugo sings here, “you’ve gone to sleep.” This is a strikingly beautiful track, one that shows a rising artist with ample enough talent to become very prominent.

“For All I Know” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of May 2019’ Spotify playlist.
