Having written for the likes of BTS and Zara Larsson, Scott Quinn is the London-based mastermind penning just as equally chart-worthy songs for himself. With enrapturing pop tendencies, Quinn is most certainly going to find himself on radio stations worldwide in no time. Ahead of his forthcoming debut EP, Quinn is giving us a generous preview with his hypnotic new single, “Better for Me.”
On “Better for Me,” Scott Quinn explained,
“This song encapsulates the moment when you feel like you’ve found your missing piece. A moment very rare – and often arriving when you least expect it. The accompanying visuals are meant to represent finding that something or someone that makes your life better or makes you feel better – and is comprised of clips from friends, family and fans who all sent through the people/places/things that make them feel better.”
The title track of Quinn’s highly anticipated EP, “Better for Me” is laced with fluttering electronics and soothing vocals that’ll have you singing along instantly. As Quinn reflects on what it’s like to finally find his missing piece, “Better for Me” offers monumental comfort in a time of stress and anxiety. To top it off, the “Better for Me” visual is a compilation of video submissions from fans, friends, and family of things that bring them joy and consolation.
“I’d wanted to write a song to guitar for a while and asked Aaron to come up with an interesting guitar riff. It’s the voice memo he recorded of said riff that can be heard on the track! I started singing over the guitar riff and immediately found what is now the chorus melody but was originally the verse. It was actually Aaron’s fiancé who had overheard us writing the song and said that the ‘verse’ was definitely the ‘chorus.’ We swapped it around and never looked back!”
