Introducing: Polly Scattergood

Currently splitting her time equally between Norfolk and Berlin, – an interesting combination, for sure – Polly Scattergood cultivates rousing yet thoughtful, synth-led epics that stubbornly lodge themselves in the front of your mind.

Forthcoming single ‘Wanderlust‘, which you can stream and download below, is the perfect precedent of this. Taken from her as-of-yet untitled sophomore full-length, which drops this summer via Mute, it’s dominated by mountainous brushstrokes of pulsing electronics, spiralling keys and Scattergood’s sweet – but astonishingly powerful – vocals. As harbingers of promise go, ‘Wanderlust’ is right up there.

Scattergood will be taking to the stage at London’s Sebright Arms on Feb 27 alongside frequent collaborator Glenn Kerrigan. For tickets, head here.

NB: ‘Wanderlust’ will be released April 1 via Mute, alongside remixes of the track from the likes of Charli XCX and How to Dress Well.
