ARROWS Out June 18th, 2013
Polly Scattergood has now unveiled her video for “Wanderlust”, the lead single from her upcoming album Arrows, due out June 18th!
Discussing the track and the video, Scattergood explains it’s about “… that moment when you break free from reality and escape everything – even by just shutting your eyes for a moment, or shutting the door to the outside the world. I have found some incredible places behind closed doors and been on some of my favorite adventures inside my mind.”
Directed by NYSU, the Spanish video collective who recently created a series of films for Scattergood’s label mates VCMG, the video aims “to capture the spirit of the song with this story about a girl that wants to escape from her past”, explain the directors. With each subsequent viewing of the video, new elements are revealed in seemingly familiar settings, echoing the perpetual sense of discovery and escape that drives the song forward.
“Wanderlust”, a spinning, luring, and lush soundscape of a track is out now with remixes by How To Dress Well and Charli XCX. A stand out on it’s own, “Wanderlust” was imbued with each remixers definitive point of view, launching the track into two very different, but stellar dimensions. The single can now be purchased via iTunes.
Recorded during time spent in Berlin and Norfolk, the album’s first single “Wanderlust” embodies the sonic youthfulness that is the heart of every Scattergood song. This youthful exuberance, alongside her mix of storytelling and soul-searching weaves its web throughout her sophomore album, Arrows, out on Mute on June 18th, 2013. Stay tuned for more news!
