Skott Incorporates Her Woodsy Upbringing Into Refined Pop Music

It doesn't take long to recognize a very unique essence in Skott's music. A press release on the Scandinavian singer-songwriter explains,

“Skott grew up in a remote small town forest commune run by 'outcast' folk musicians. The small supportive community exposed her to music while she grew up in this unorthodox childhood, however Skott didn't actually hear any contemporary music until she went to the city for the first time in her mid-teens.”

Taking a relatable pop structure and infusing her delicate voice and organic, multi-layered instrumentation within it, Skott was immediately noticed with her first single "Porcelain"– most notably by pop heavyweight Lorde. She's followed up today with "Wolf," sharing with The Fader,

“I see the woods where I grew up when I hear the song. I recall something pure, natural and wild, it makes me feel empowered in some way." 

Listen to both songs below, and keep up with Skott here.
