"The most acclaimed musician you have yet to be introduced to" - Clash
Following the release of his stunner, power ballad 'Triangle', South London's Hudson Scott is back with 'Lone Wolf' - another masterfully crafted single, full of poetic metaphor and lush instrumentation, which further demonstrates the artist's bursting talent. One may not immediately pick up on the underlying narratives surrounding this seemingly upbeat track. As its title suggests, the song actually deals with issues of social anxiety and shyness, which Scott cleverly articulates with his sensitive and moving delivery. These supposedly contrasting elements, however, do not come as a surprise from the musician whose driven sound (and day job in carpentry) often conceal confessional and heartrending songwriting. With its catchy melodies and fusion of live instruments and intricate electronic production, Lone Wolf makes a perfect future-pop tune that draws inspirations from afrobeat, disco and funk. It smoothly shifts between 80s-like synth stabs, expressive brass motifs and Scott's unmistakable vocals, creating a nostalgic yet ultra-modern and distinctive sonic palette. Having worked extensively as a multi-instrumentalist with established acts such as Foals, TEED and Songhoy Blues, and lending vocals to George Fitzgerald's upcoming album All That Must Be, Scott has also received much support for his solo work from outlets such as NME, Noisey and Radio 1. His latest single Triangle was then picked up and praised by publications like The Line of Best Fit and Clash, and made it to Vinyl Me, Please and Spotify's New Alternative playlists. Following this impressive endorsement, Scott will also be joining and supporting Chad Valley on his UK tour this May. The new single will be released alongside a special disco edit, which sees the artist collaborating with Domino Records' Little Cub.
