HANNAH SCOTT – SINGLE REVIEW

Hannah Scott – Weight of Your Words (Casa Music) 
Hannah Scott - Weight of Your Words


Release Date: 9th June 2017

Hannah Scott describes her music as acoustic-pop but new single ‘Weight of Your Words’ exists, for me, on the horizon of the acoustic walking with purpose firmly towards the pop world. If you were organising these rippling synths, sparse beats and wispy vocals in to CD order based on genre then it would slot in nicely between Ellie Goulding’s early, less overt material and Beth Orton’s more recent, electronic material which is no bad place to slot in. The other, slightly disarming thing is that Hannah Scott’s voice has something of a timeless quality that could fit in to the 80s alongside the power balladeers and electro pioneers or the 90s with Dubstar and St Etienne. Heartbroken stuff, for sure, but gorgeous nonetheless.
