Skott is the embodiment of the kind of genre- less protean pop world we’re rapidly moving towards. Hailing from the continent (remember that place?) she’s dropped scorchers like ‘Wolf’ and ‘Porcelain’, songs that envelop you in their instinctually sure-footed cohesiveness.

It’s a mood-oriented approach that will prove exemplary now that the wells of alt-rock and deep house have well and truly been dried.
