I love discovering new artists, especially when they have a singular background, make good music and – on top of that – are strikingly good looking. Even though Skott is still relatively unknown, Porcelain has already reached over 350’000 plays on Soundcloud… and her 7″ vinyl single hasn’t even come out yet!
It’s difficult not to get carried away by this catchy and enchanting chorus. But why resist? I felt thrown into the singer’s childhood; overcome with emotion and joy. The track is spotlessly produced and written in a psychedelically beautiful way. Hunger for more struck me immediately as the song ended. We’ll all have to stay tuned until 29 July to discover “Wolf” and learn more about this young talented artist.
As explained by the London based record label Chess Club Records: “Having grown up in a forest commune, Skott thrived in an environment run by ‘outcast’ folk musicians. They together built a very small but very supportive community there, quite remotely from anywhere of note. As a result, Skott didn’t actually hear any contemporary music until she went to the city for the first time in her mid teens, despite growing up surrounded by music in this somewhat unorthodox childhood.”
As Skott herself says about “Porcelain,” “The most precious things take time and care to build, but take only a fraction of that time to destroy or break. Porcelain is about how you can spend limitless time creating something – trust, for example – but you can also let it fall to the ground in a second.”
