Line Up

Elanor Moss is a London songwriter drawing inspiration from 70s folkies and short story writers. Her writing focuses on the edges of darkness and laughter, beauty and ugliness, violence and tenderness, as she applies a tender lens to themes of human fallibility.

Moss has released two acclaimed EPs: the dark autobiographical debut ‘Citrus’ and its lighter follow up ‘Cosmic’, across which she experimented with identity and voice through genre and tone.

Following the release of ‘Cosmic’ she contributed to the Chrysalis Records Nick Drake compilation album ‘The Endless Coloured Ways’ featuring on a cover of ‘Which Will’ with Christian Lee Hutson.

Moss's singles have seen extensive BBC6 Music support, including a Marc Riley live session. She has performed at Green Man, Pitchfork London and End of the Road, and shared stages on tours with Christian Lee Hutson, CMAT, Indigo Sparke, Cassandra Jenkins, and Benjamin Francis Leftwich.

2023 saw a sold out London headline show at St Pancras Old Church and closed with a tour opening for Poet Laureate Simon Armitage’s band LYR and with her single ’Catholic’ making it into Time Out’s “Best of 2023.”

This year she is recording her debut album.

Hamburg born, Sweden raised and now firmly London based having moved to the capital at the age of 17, Scout's transcendent pop creations are cathartic and empowering in equal measure. Partly tracking her journey as a young woman finding her footing in this industry (having operated in a shoegaze band signed to Heavenly Records in her late teens), Scout is a project rooted in defiance and knowing your worth.
