‘Arrows’ by Polly Scattergood is most certainly one of our favorite albums of the year. No question.
We’ve had a love affair with Polly Scattergood’s music this year, falling charmed to her deep-layered electronic pop that not only touches the soul, but enlightens the spirit and re-ignites the love for the album, when we live in a throw away singles music universe. ‘Arrows’ has such an atmospheric beauty to it that is unparelled and spectacuarly special – beyond anything you might be listening to right now.
In this EQ Music interview with Polly Scattergood, we talk about the ‘Arrows’, how she took inspiration from Suzanne Vega’s ‘Luka’, her tracks ‘Disco Damaged Kid’ and ‘Subsequently Lost’ and the challenges of the new music industry being a young new talent from Kentish Town.
If you haven’t downloaded ‘Arrows’ yet – please do. It’s the perfect album to luxuriate in during this crisp November and December. It’s kept me warm all summer long. Bravo to Mute Records for develping this artist into what she is today.
