Emerging UK artist, scott is okay has just released his new EP Realising How to Act in Certain Instances which captivates electronic sounds like you’ve never heard before. Released via Yada Yada, the new well-anticipated EP mixes glitchy vocal samples alongside nostalgia-filled sounds which all come together to create something unique and forward-thinking.
Each track holds its own unique presence on the EP and captivates his unique brand of laid-back lofi-pop. On “Waiting For MY Turn To Speak”, a warming intro and build-up provides a one-minute section that runs into a charismatic alternative indie track. This can also be heard on “Bleep Test”, with sounds that can be reminiscent of Passion Pit. On the intro track, “Bad Habits” you can hear these glitchy notes, making it easy to see that Scott isn’t afraid to experiment with his production style, occasionally throwing the off-kilter yet majestical sonic curveball.
He explains his process behind the EP, “I finished everything and looked at the EP, what was I trying to say? A common theme of lack of communication, not being able to articulate myself and all the anxieties surrounding that started to form – and that’s when I wrote the final song ‘Waiting for My Turn to Speak’ and it felt like it tied everything up. Every time I listen to it I hate it, or love it – but I think a lot of creatives get that. I started writing it in 2020 and I see a lot of the old me in this, I see where I’ve changed, and I see where I’m stuck. I still think it’s bizarre to be able to look at moments of my life and categorize them by the songs that defined those times but I’m glad I got to.”
‘Realising How to Act in Certain Instances’ is out now on all streaming services.
