'Take Your Light' was released in August and is a record that excels with it's blend of compsure, sentiment and diaphaneity. Whether it's the measured emotion of the Bat For Lashes styled intro 'In The Air', the grandeur of 'We Are Walking Out's closing moments, or the way the title track slow dances it's way across the room, this is an album that carries itself demurely; the atmospheric arrangements shaping a pocket into which Melissa Tickle's exquisite vocal can slip. A supporting slot for Camera Obscura last year provides a pointer to Little Scout's modus operandi, but for the Glaswegians merriment they've substituted modesty, outright celebration is replaced with cautious optimism. Later in the piece there's a touch of Rose Elinor Dougall in some of the compositions, while 'Right Now We Are Here' sounds like the type of material Tennis could start to produce once they've satisfied their wander lust and moored the sailing boat at the jetty. Any proper Scout will make a promise to always do their best, this little one has kept its word.
