After achieving national and international success with their debut single “Get Wild”, ALT EGO hopes to achieve more success with their latest release “Embrasse Moi”.
In March, we released our first single “Get Wild” featuring the amazing Amy Tjasink. Since then, the song has achieved various milestones, which include being playlisted on radio and Trace TV, featuring on the local charts and getting remixed by international DJ El Mukuka, which received more than 70 000 views on YouTube.
So you can imagine our excitement ahead of the release of our second single “Embrasse Moi”.
It was one of the last tracks we completed on our album, but it quickly became our personal favourite as we loved the vibe of the song, while it also incorporated keyboard and beat-boxing. At anytime, you’ll hear Callen on violin or Jody on guitar whilst beat-boxing – it’s a great mix of our acoustic music with an electronic influence. We love pushing the musical boundaries.
“Embrasse Moi” is a story of a man, who is questioned about his night out. Having enjoyed himself a bit too much, he doesn’t remember anything from teh night before. He mutters a few words in different languages, but distinctively remembers the words “Embrasse Moi”, which means kiss me in French.
We just shot the music video in Johannesburg last week, in collaboration with Sunglass Hut. The storyline is centred around the man’s crazy night as we find out why he can’t remember much from prior events! Special shout-out to the illustrious Lindy Lin, who makes a special feature in our video.
The “Embrasse Moi” music video will be released on Wednesday, 15 November. Stay tuned to our social media platforms for more information!
“Embrasse Moi” is a great follow-up to “Get Wild” as we feel it’s a perfect fit for our next jam in South Africa and abroad. We received a great reaction from locals after releasing the song on Carl Wastie’s show on KFM. The European market is really responding well to ALT EGO’s sound, so we’re excited to see how it does overseas on this occasion.

Otherwise, we have a busy weekend ahead!
Friday, you can catch us during our usual slot at the One and Only Hotel at the V&A Waterfront. On Saturday, we have been booked for a private gig, while we’ll be attending the We Love Summer event afterwards. Having been booked for most of the festive season, we make the most of the rare opportunity to enjoy some free time in the Mother City!
We love attending outdoor parties as we gain so much inspiration from the acts on stage. Who knows… maybe we get inspired to create more hits like “Get Wild” and “Embrasse Moi”? Better yet… maybe you’ll see more of us on stage soon!
