Skott shares his second album: Roses N Guns
The album features their new single “Roses N Guns,” an emotionally charged synth-pop ballad that explores destructive, all-consuming love that’s as unbelievable as it is intense through shimmering synths and breathy hooks.
Skott also shares the mesmerizing video for “Roses N Guns” directed by her. The video follows the release of the latest single “Hail Mary,” a last atmospheric effort to find love before she runs away.
An introspective expedition across a continent on an emerging planet in Skott’s creative universe, Roses N Guns documents their self-discovery, growth and creative metamorphosis in real time within immersive alternative soundscapes punctuated with eloquent pop choruses. Roses N Guns houses Skott’s most impressive body of work to date and is a play on his name, which means both “shot” and “shoot” in Swedish.
Each song represents a different location on the treasure map in the album artwork, creating a whole cosmos of atmospheres, experiences and moods that cross genres, from the poetic and powerful violin of “Memory Shore” (the place where the mother de Skott said he could go in his imagination to be with deceased loved ones) to the delicate urgency of “Firetrucks on Fire” (about the futility of trying to put out the fire of an inevitable breakup).
Written over the past two years in the solitude of a cabin with no running water or electricity, Roses N Guns sees Skott reconnect with her roots and nature to find herself and rediscover the power and energy in the things she loved when she was younger. young. Skott hopes the album will inspire others to reconnect with themselves as well. “Music has the ability to reach places within people who are locked up,” she explains. “It can be super healing. It can help you get in touch with things you forgot or don’t want to remember. You can’t reach some people just by talking to them, but music breaks through. I wanted to create something that sounded like my feelings.”
