Polly Scattergood – and what a name that is – is that rare talent, a musician and songwriter who can make the disturbing sound delightful. The 25 year-old musician’s self-titled debut (released in 2009) was contextually dark and startling, yet coupled with her innocent, girlish vocals, delivered a finished product of jubilant experimental pop.
However, one would be remiss to pigeonhole her into a “singer-songwriter” or “experimental pop” category, as the artist’s view of her own work is quite different. The greatest fear of this expressive musician is being limited limited to one singular genre. She emphasizes, “I would be really gutted if I was put in a box marked ‘experimental pop’ and then maybe one day I decided to write a blues song or an acoustic rock song and I found it difficult because I’d been boxed up as an ‘experimental pop’ thing.”
With three years past since the release of her debut, Polly Scattergood has harnessed her afflication to classification and has created a more mature, yet still inately unique, Sophomore album. In anticipation and excitement for this release, due out Spring 2013, she is pleased to share with the world her track “Disco Damaged Kid” which can be streamed here as well as via her lyric video.
