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.”
Listen to ‘Happy When’ BELOW:
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.
