“Arrows deserves to make Scattergood a star” – MOJO ****
” Polly Scattergood should be a star. Hell, if even a handful of the Top 40 had the same amount of confidence, attitude and melody, the charts would be in a far greater state.” – Clash
Mute artist Polly Scattergood will release her second album Arrows on 21October 2013. Written in London, Norfolk, France and Berlin, Arrows features Polly Scattergood’s signature blend of storytelling and soul-searching, but also looks outwards and heavenwards, spinning an enchanting web of sonic playfulness while stretching for new skylines and is available to stream here:
“This album was my ‘arrow’ — pointing me in the right direction after I was lost for a while. This feels like where I want to be as an artist.“ Polly Scattergood
The album’s lead track and second single Cocoon will be released via Mute on 4 November. The single bundle features remixes from British dance producer Fort Romeau and label mate Maps. The video for Cocoon was directed by the award-winning Madrid-based video collective NYSU; this is the second video they have directed for Polly having cemented the relationship on the Wanderlust video shoot.
