Rising star Caitlyn Scarlett, described by The Line of Best Fit as ‘being on the verge of something big’, pre-empts the release of her forthcoming EP ‘Red Tape, Vol. 2’ due 2018 with details of a brand new hauntingly emotive track ‘Happy When’ (produced by Fred Cox – Rag N Bone Man, Anne-Marie, Raye) available this October.
Caitlyn describes the track: “Living in a world where pop culture, media and advertisers encourage us daily to feel insufficient and unattractive, combined with the multidimensional meat-market of the dating scene today, Happy When is the study and confession of a compulsion I think most can relate to. Finding romance, companionship and purpose in the arms of another is a goal most of us keep in our hearts, but a mentality I recently find myself questioning in my early twenties as I realise the importance of a good relationship with oneself first.”
Following the acclaim of her previous EP ‘Red Tape, Vol 1’ earlier this year, Caitlyn garnered support from the likes of Clash, Wonderland, The 405, Huw Stephens, Radio X and BBC Introducing. Having already amassed over 6 million streams on Spotify, the young singer-songwriter finds herself collaborating with producers and artists such as MNEK, Shakka, DJ Dahi (Drake, Kendrick Lamar, Big Sean), MelO x (Beyoncé) and Levi Lennox – (M.I.A, Krept & Konan, Zayn Malik).
‘Happy When’ is a continuation of a career full of promise. Born and raised in a small village called Bray, Caitlyn started writing her own songs at the age of nine. A self-taught guitarist and pianist raised in a musical household, she left home at seventeen for the bright lights of London, a move that looks to have paid off in spades as Caitlyn becomes one of the UK’s hotly anticipated acts for 2018.
