Bianca Scout


Heralding an age of gothic, technocratic dystopia, on ‘Pattern Damage’, Bianca Scout’s 2024 release, the dancer and self-taught musician weaves a patchwork of narcotic vocals, blunted after-hours ambience, and chopped-n-screwed sacred music. Hers is a landscape heavy in the themes of pastoral memory, displacement, undead and yearning. Scout avoids the most obvious references, opting to tarnish more distant pasts with a musical vocabulary that's as informed by contemporary pop as it is by experimental forms. In her hands, Medieval church music is a color that compliments AutoTuned vocals and wobbly bass drones
