Alternative | Alt Hip Hop Act WHO SHOT SCOTT Release “LOVE WE’LL NEVER KNOW”

Posted by on November 20, 2021

Armed with an inspiring story that lies within the upbringing and heartbreak of the man behind WHO SHOT SCOTT, the experimental hip-hop artist has certainly been through trials and turbulence. Fleeing Iraq in the arms of his mother when he was 2 years old, they were forced to journey to Moscow due to the dangers in his home country. After time in the Russian capital, they packed their belongings and travelled to New Zealand. Meeting and finding comfort in a friend at the age of 8, their shared love for hip-hop resulted in an internationally performing duo with big visions for the future. In 2019 however, his partner, citing new-found religious belief, abruptly announced he will no longer make music, moved overseas and left his closest friend with no goodbye. After some gruelling months, experimental hip-hop artist WHO SHOT SCOTT was born from the ashes of that personal and professional apocalypse. The hybrid variety of influences and vibes on their new single and video is both impressive and as eclectic as it gets. Tap in above now and read a quote from the artist below!

“Vulnerability has always been at the forefront of my creative philosophy, whether it be my lyrical content or within my music production, I always strive to be brave and express my inner emotions as accurately as possible through my music. At the time of writing this song, I was dealing with the remnants of post-traumatic stress caused by an abusive relationship from my past. I was in a seriously bad place mentally and finally came to the realisation that I wasn’t ever truly in love with this person, but instead, infatuated by the potential of the relationship getting better. I’m very blessed to say that I eventually got out of that situation safely, but the manipulation definitely had some long-lasting effects on me than I would have liked it too. For me – this song is my closure, this is me telling myself that what happened was not my fault and doesn’t define me or my future. I was just seeing a love that wasn’t truly there.”

Alternative, Pop | LaVo Releases Feel-Good Single, “Night Train”

Posted by on May 24, 2021

Bringing back that nostalgic feel-good alt-pop sound, indie artist LaVo returns with a new, more emotionally charged single entitled “Night Train”. The song is about the withdrawals of a relationship and how it feels going through that process, which is unforuntly a feeling that many of us have been through many times, so should resonate with most. Taking inspiration from the likes of Foals, Flume, and Tame Impala, LaVo combines modern styles with a heavy dose of youthful 90s and 00’s pop. Check out a quote from LaVo on the new drop below and stream “Night Train” above now!

“Night Train” Explores themes of loneliness, longing, hope and desperation. It is lyrically mostly about the novelty of love. The sometimes randomness of it all and the serendipity in contrast. Alluding to the sentiment of “The harder you look the less you find”. Exploring the torment of feeling lost yet finding something incredible along the way. This was something personally I had never experienced and looking back on it there still feels no way to prepare for it.

“ANTRACYTE is the intro and title track to my debut EP. It’s the soundtrack to the birth of a villain and captures the moment of complete honesty to yourself about the awareness of doing wrong by the ones you love while feeling the inability to turn around. It’s about the desire to taste forbidden fruits, to cross and explore what lies beyond the line and the self-empowering feeling of playing by your own rules defeating the fear of consequences and the power of moral concepts. ANTRACYTE tells a story of contradicting emotions, a story of love, lust, pain and a longing for more. It’s about facing your own darkness and sins, about self-revelation, emancipation and about paying its price, resigning to your fate.”
