.@hudsonscottuk is anything but angular on new track 'Triangle'

  • Hudson Scott has been a background man for much of his music career, a multi-instrumentalist working with acts such as Foals, TEED and Songhoy Blues.
  • With new track ‘Triangle’ however, Scott has announced himself as someone with truly special and unique songwriting abilities, making ‘Triangle’ sounding akin to afrobeat written by the late and great Arthur Russell.
  • Like the aforementioned Russell, Scott pairs electronic horn stabs with a jazzy funk rhythm section that begs to be danced to, channeling ‘Total Life Forever’ era Foals, all effortlessly segueing into a hook that is filled with bittersweet lyrics, forming a brew that is utterly intoxicating and immediately attention grabbing….
  • Like Arthur Russell, Scott has kept a relative low profile over his music career.
  • This break off into solo music should act as statement: Scott is ready to make deeply affecting music, something that could be up with the great Arthur Russell.

Hudson Scott has been a background man for much of his music career, a multi-instrumentalist working with acts such as Foals, TEED and Songhoy Blues. With new track ‘Triangle’ however, Scott has announced himself as someone with truly special and unique songwriting abilities, making ‘Triangle’ sounding akin to afrobeat written by the late and great Arthur Russell. ‘Triangle’ is a song based upon grooves. Like the aforementioned Russell, Scott pairs electronic horn stabs with a jazzy funk rhythm section that begs to be danced to, channeling ‘Total Life Forever’ era Foals, all effortlessly segueing into a hook that is filled with bittersweet lyrics, forming a brew that is utterly intoxicating and immediately attention grabbing.

Like Arthur Russell, Scott has kept a relative low profile over his music career. Most notably appearing on George Fitzgerald’s ‘Nobody But You’, Scott developed his musicianship while working as a carpenter. This break off into solo music should act as statement: Scott is ready to make deeply affecting music, something that could be up with the great Arthur Russell.
