Scandinavian singer/songwriter Skott has shared "Wolf", her second single, ahead of her first-ever live show next month.
"Sometimes you can't control what you feel," says Skott of the song's meaning. "No matter how we change ourselves on the surface, there's an instinct inside of us we can't ignore. ‘Wolf’ is about not giving up on what your heart truly desires. 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."
Skott's upbringing wasn't exactly traditional - a press release 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."
Skott is making her live debut at Gothenberg's Way Out West festival, and then playing London twice in September.
