Recent times have generated reflection of one’s self. A great many have taken a different direction and approach to their lives, and this can certainly be said for the arts. Musician Cameron Scott has had the time to allow the work of Thom Yorke, The Blue Nile, Brian Eno and a dash of Kraftwerk shroud him during isolation. His go-to creatively is usually indie rock, but suddenly he found himself like a moth to a flame, drawn towards ambient pieces bordering on the electronic side.

During isolation, the luxury to work in my mini home-made studio helped me focus my time and not go too stir crazy with boredom. In the past month, I ended up with three tracks, which I consider the peak of my creativity during lockdown, and two of them I decided to fit some lyrics around that complimented their aura.” He explains.

Final Boss Round is bizarrely fun, creating a sci-fi language with a hint of medieval atmosphere, topped with a chilling laugh to end. In The Good Times, we strongly hear the Eno influence, with the song shifting velocity when the organ-backed lyrics hit, and Watch Me Smile As I Cut You Off is a moodier song with the repetition of the profound title. The trio of songs are an eclectic bunch, which provides an interesting documentation of Scott’s lockdown experiences.
