Rising alt pop sensation Caitlyn Scarlett is more than bewitching with her new single Happy When, a dark entangling, hauntingly emotive track produced by Fred Cox (Rag’N’Bone Man, Anne-Marie, Raye). It’s a fierce and gusty, sinuous and seductive taste from her forthcoming EP, Red Tape Vol. 2, due out later this year.  Caitlyn details the video: “The visual for ‘Happy When’ was something I wanted do get right but also keep subtle, because the song is written with a vague sarcasm to it and it’s true nature is to poke holes in some really unhealthy attitudes our society has towards romance. In the video we see someone (me lol) who is remaining alone by choice, wary of the downsides to relationships and also more comfortable doing their own thing. We also blew up a bunch of roses which was pretty neat, I was lucky to keep my eyebrows thanks to those yellow glasses.” Happy When is like a fine blend of Zella Day and Banks, and it certainly seems an auspicious arrival for fans of the UK artist who are hoping for a huge year for the ascending star. Stream/purchase Happy When, here.

Bewitching and seductive is an understatement when it comes to this enthralling remix of Caitlyn Scarlett’s ‘Human, Being’ by British songwriter and producer Lex Low. We’ve been fond of Caitlyn Scarlett’s dark pop in the past, which at times reminded us of Zella Day and Melanie Martinez. Under the guidance of Lex Low’s adept production hands, her smoky voice and immense range end up conjuring Banks, too. Lex Low has given ‘Human, Being’ a sinuous winding, atmospheric surging electro re-work. I’m entangled in its tight embrace and riveting curls, which feel a bit like SOHN transported to the 80s. You can listen to Caitlyn Scarlett’s original, here. Stream and purchase her EP, Red Tape Vol. 1, here.

It’s been a far too long year since we last heard from Caitlyn Scarlett, who teamed up with producer Ayo Beatz a year ago to give us fierce and vivid War Cry. The UK artist makes her long awaited return with Rust, a smoldering beauty of a soulful pop ballad on which Caitlyn’s astonishing voice takes flight and soars. Like its name, Rust is a ruddy slice of gilded pop. It carries a hint of Zero 7 in its trip pop sophistication. The single is available now from iTunes, and hopefully it signifies the coming of more new material from this stunning musician.

Alright, moving on from the upbeat, boogie down Halloween treats to much darker material with this other wordly, ominous treat from the UK’s Caitlyn Scarlett. War Cry is a fierce song, produced by Ayo Beatz, that nearly takes us on a storybook journey with its lush sounds and endless mentions of spiders, lions, dinosaurs, and everything in between. If you dig Melanie Martinez’s creepy electropop or Zella Day’s dark pop, mixed with some trap like on Grimes’ recent single Go, this one’s right up your alley. The bass is heavy, the vocals soulful, and the melody utterly bewitching. War Cry will be on an EP in the works for 2015.

Caitlyn Scarlett’s smoky vocals immediately reminded me of one rising Los Angeles star named BANKS. The young UK artist’s debut single Bad Love starts out very soulful, slinking along seductively with hints of folk and alt dark pop, but then the heavy, guttural bass hits, and the song just takes off. The genre blending song even reminds me at times of Tennessee singer songwriter Meg Myers and her passionate, ghoulish rock music. The mesmerizing, powerful song is off Caitlyn Scarlett’s forthcoming EP Jurassic Jukebox and Other Drugs. I’m looking forward to hearing more.
