As Pale Seas, Scott dropped one of 2014's best EPs and then...nothing. Now it turns out he was holed up in a medieval abbey on a remote part of the Isle Of Wight cutting the tracks for a debut album, promised later this year.

"Into the Night" - the opening track from that record - is the strong return we'd hoped for. A four-minute blast of icy indie rock, it's flush with Scott's re-invigorated vocal and a real sense of musical purpose.

We also get the sparse but warm acoustic number "Blood Return".

Both tracks are strengthened by a visual from the incredible photographer Hollie Fernando, channelling iconic monochrome rock poses alongside some stacatto Chris Cunningham editing.

Pale Seas play The Joiners in Southampton on 25 May.
