Following a string of critically acclaimed releases in 2016, Scandinavian songstress SKOTT keeps the momentum going in 2017, announcing her latest single, “Glitter & Gloss,”
out TODAY in the U.S. via RCA Records.
On “Glitter & Gloss,” Skott’s haunting vocals sparkle against a backdrop of shimmering synths, menacing percussion and hazy, incandescent production. As her first release in the new year,
“Glitter & Gloss” follows previous singles, “Lack of Emotion,” “Amelia,” “Wolf” and her stunning debut single from last summer, “Porcelain,” which snagged a coveted slot on the
official FIFA 17 soundtrack.
Currently on tour in Europe, Skott is slated to make her U.S. debut this Spring, with confirmed appearances at SXSW in Austin, followed by one-off shows in both Los
Angeles and New York City.
Skott spent her early years in a forest commune run by a collection of outcast folk musicians. Together they built a small but supportive community, quite far from the nearest populated city.
There, surrounded by nature she thrived, learning to appreciate life without all the distractions associated with living in a city. Largely sequestered from contemporary pop culture, it wasn’t
until Skott ventured into the city during her mid-teens that she listened to contemporary music for the first time.
Since making her debut last year, Skott has been steadily racking up support with her songs popping up on several Spotify ‘New Music Friday’ playlists and massive radio support
from the likes of Annie Mac (Radio 1), Zane Lowe (Beats1) and KCRW (Jason Kramer). Skott has even received high profile endorsements on Twitter from both Katy
Perry and Lorde. Check out “Porcelain” HERE. There’s no question that Skott is one to watch in 2017.
