Scandinavian pop howler Skott debuts the bright pop of ‘Wolf’


Skott is a new artist out of Scandinavia (who apparently “grew up in a remote small town forest commune run by ‘outcast’ folk musicians”) whose debut single ‘Porcelain’ was featured as Annie Mac’s Hottest Record In The World and was approved by Lorde. Grand job.

Her second single, ‘Wolf’ is a finger-clicking-assisted composition of bright pop proportions with orchestral maneuvers intact. The song references that forest she grew up in.

“Sometimes you can’t control what you feel – no matter how we change ourselves on the surface, there’s an instinct inside of us we can’t ignore. ‘Wolf’ is about not giving up on what your heart truly desires. “I see the woods where I grew up when I hear the song. I recall something pure, natural and wild, it makes me feel empowered in some way.”

‘Wolf’ features on Skott’s forthcoming debut double-sided 7″ single set to release July 29 via Chess Club Records (UK) and B3SCI Records (U.S.)

Skott Live:

13th September – Way Out West, Gothenburg
28th September – Notting Hill Arts Club, London (New Shapes Presents..)
29th September – Birthdays, London
26th October – Pitchfork Music Festival, Paris
