Polly Scattergood's Hate Filled Debut Coming
The single includes the exclusive B-side "Poem Song." "I Hate The Way" follows Scattergood's debut single "Nitrogen Pink."
Polly Scattergood is a rare talent, a musician who can make the disturbing sound delightful. Built around fractious yet delicate guitar and piano (she plays a stylophone and accordion too), and Scattergood's distinctive voice, the album is produced by Simon Fisher-Turner and Gareth Jones.
“I don’t see myself as a singer-songwriter, or even a singer,” says 22 year-old Scattergood. "I would describe myself as a songwriter who sings.”
But Polly Scattergood is not a whiny troubadour. There is humor on her album, albeit of the dark variety. Scattergood sings of suicidal tendencies, sadness in the air, spitting on her French knickers and being called a whore. But she does so in such an idiosyncratically alluring, soft little-girl voice, one of ravaged innocence, placing her startling imagery in such pretty pop contexts, that you can’t help being seduced.
