A key player in the Brit rap renaissance, renowned live performer, acclaimed wordsmith and expert storyteller, Ed Scissor’s development tessellates strongly with his ever-blossoming relationship with Glasgow-based producer Lamplighter. The pair have developed into one of the go-to partnerships in the alt-rap soundscape ever since their debut ‘Better.Luck.Next.Life’ was released to critical acclaim back in 2012 (even though they rarely find themselves in the same room as one another).
Ed Scissor + Lamplighter‘s forthcoming release ‘Tell Them It’s Winter’ is due 15th July via High Focus Records, the album is set to encapsulate the dark undertones of Britain through the bleak lyrics backed by eerie and sparse production.
The duo have shared the first track from the forthcoming album ‘TTIW’ a dark, spiraling track that lyrically seeps into the gloomiest part of your mind, bringing forward the brutal truth of life.
