…a powerful and cinematic, scattered with moments of raw intimacy and delicate soundscapes, documenting various snap shots of life. Like a soundtrack to a compendium of photographs, it is a collection of experiences that come together to create an album.
October 16th sees Polly release an acoustic EP, entitled “The Attic Sessions”, about which she has this to say:
"In the absence of touring, we decided to move our gear into the attic and set up a little space we could live stream from. "The Attic Sessions - live from lockdown" became a regular fixture on YouTube. We played various stripped back skeleton versions of tracks from "In This Moment". It was just me and Glenn and a few instruments. It really felt like going back to my roots. The voice and the story had to carry it all which felt refreshing. They had such a warm reception we decided to put them onto a little EP recorded live from our attic. I love the realness of this EP. I am someone who tends to spend hours in the studio but, with this EP, I just allowed it to be "In This Moment" and embrace the imperfections of 2020; the sounds of our creaking the attic and the odd seagull from outside the window. They always seemed to sit on the roof the minute we pressed record!”

…Polly Scattergood is returning with her fourth studio album in early 2020, entitled ‘In This Moment’.
Sonically, the album is powerful and cinematic, scattered with moments of raw intimacy and delicate soundscapes. Encompassing grief and joy in equal measure, the album documents various snap shots of life including her journey towards motherhood.
Each song is a snapshot of a moment in time. Like a soundtrack to a compendium of photographs, it is a collection of experiences that come together to create an album.
In part documenting Polly’s journey towards motherhood, encompassing grief and joy in equal measure, some moments are older than others, but all are now reflected upon from a slightly new perspective.
Polly began recording this album shortly after having her first child, and on a very human level felt this massive sense of freedom, peace, and also wonderment which opened her up artistically to writing again.
Sonically, she loves music which feeds her, hearing new things on each listen, and so tried to create many layers and textures within the sounds…fires crackling…breathing. She even had a few field recordings of bells and the sea from time living in Fuerteventura a few years ago. Polly and her producer, Glenn Kerrigan, weaved them into the soundscape very subtly, so occasionally you will catch glimpses of them. Worlds within worlds.
