Reliably informed

Almost entirely carved out of minimal piano ballads, A Trio Of Vignettes is the new three-track EP from Cameron Scott, and aligns closely to the raw, honest, moments of Nick Cave circa The Boatman’s Call.

Written in the cycle of pre-winter isolation, the EP tells the tale of broken relationships, missed opportunities and deep regret. Standout track Bedlam nudges Scott towards the more broken and desperate moments of Spiritualized, whilst opener Second Magpie sounds like something from Tricky’s Pre Millennium Tension album with its bleakness, sense of confusion and lapses of paranoia. A fantastic collection, Scott’s work may not be the soundtrack to a Saturday night out, but it does soothe in the right places.

Released: 05.04.21
