Polly Scattergood

February 26, 2009

Polly Scattergood may be her actual name but with the scatter-gun approach of great artists she can be compared to, Scattergreat would be more appropriate.  There is unquestionably a  PJ Harvey/Tori Amos/Kate Bush/Joanna Newsom/Björk  influence on her tunes and yet they are more than mere replications- she has a fantastic voice and the songwriting along with the composition of her tunes is simply ear-pleasingly excellent.

Her single Nitrogen Pink which was released last year is one of those infectious tunes that will bounce off the insides of your skull for days at a time and her new single Other Too Endless is a slow building number that is just pure bliss.

Her debut self-titled album will be released on March 9th and it’s definitely one to look out for.

[EDIT] From her MySpace she will be in Dublin at Crawdaddy on the 21st of April…back that morning from the States so just might make it!
