Scout Releases Debut EP “Rather Be Blind (Than See My Life Without You)”: Streaming
- London-based singer-songwriter Scout released her debut EP “Rather Be Blind (Than See My Life Without You)” on July 30, 2021.
Also on the same day, she dropped “California Dreaming” as a new single from the EP.
The EP comprises of 4-track, co-produced by Scout and Gethin Pearson. All songs were written by Scout. Except “Never Fade” co-written by Joe Cross and “California Dreaming” co-written by Hoost.
Scout said of the EP, “I like to write about places I've lived and details and stuff that stuck with me. The biggest overall theme is growing pains and shaky relationships I've had with others, and myself. I hope people will be able to relate and see a bit of themselves in it, hopefully it'll brighten their day that someone else is struggling and messing up too.”
She continued, “I've done everything very DIY at home on this EP. Everything is on a bit of a timeline - I wanted to be able to follow through with the story through the songs and the visuals. Visuals are super important to me, I love art and film and for me it's a something I can't wait to build on further and tie in more on my next EP.”
- She explained of the new single, “'California Dreaming' is about coming-of-age/living in a small town. I wanted to write about the “us and them” feeling I used to live with, watching stuff on TV and social media and when everything just feels so far removed from you and your mates lives. I used to feel pretty stuck back home [in Sweden] but now I can see that what you have in those places and the people you share it with is pretty special. There's almost a bond you share if you haven't gone on expensive holidays or had exciting stuff on your doorstep growing up.”
