Skott – Porcelain


Chess Club records who seem to have a knack for unearthing some of the most interesting pop acts over the last few years may have struck gold yet again.  ‘Porcelain’ the debut single from Skott is a lavish, darkly shimmering pop gem – for those who like comparisons, well, perhaps there’s a vague hint of the melancholy and doomed grandeur of Lana Del Rey’s ‘Summertime Sadness.’ It’s a reflective, beautifully crafted pop song, with a sky-scraping chorus and according to Skott ‘Porcelain’ is all about fragility – “The most precious things take time and care to build, but take only a fraction of that time to destroy or break. Porcelain is about how you can spend limitless time creating something – trust, for example – but you can also let it fall to the ground in a second.”

Apparently Skott’s formative years were somewhat unorthodox as she  grew up in a commune run by a collection of ‘outcast folk musicians.’ This meant that although  didn’t actually listen to contemporary music until her mid-teens.
