A little bit about Scout Niblett.
Nottingham, England, native Scout Niblett occupies a deceptively sing-songy gothic world of haunted children and the geography of both pain and ecstasy. With a voice that ranges from ethereal reediness to muscular fury, she’s the bastard daughter of PJ Harvey, Kim Gordon and Courtney Love. Here, Niblett reveals some of her favorites, so that we might better understand what inspires her.
