If your first single receives tweet praise from both Katy Perry and Lorde you know you’ve done something right. So it happened to singer Pauline Skott with last year’s single ‘Porcelain’, a fragile piece indie pop from falsetto heaven. Her next three singles confirmed her artistry, ranging from folk to disco, pairing acoustic instruments and electronics. Skott is anything but conventional. Growing up in a forest commune, the Swedish singer thrived in an environment run by ‘outcast’ folk musicians. Such an upbringing left this rising songwriter to do things her own way, and the quiet intensity behind her lyrical sketches exemplifies this.
Expect big things.
