In the summer of 2011, having dropped out of University, Jacob Scott was asking himself questions wondering where his life might be heading. Jaded by formal education, he did the only thing that had ever provided him real joy – writing music. With an old acoustic guitar and a 4-track cassette recorder, he holed himself up in his Leytonstone flat and began work on a set of songs that would change his world entirely.

Reverb-drenched and otherworldly, the music from those first recordings was beautiful and bitter-sweet. Recalling deep, honest emotions of love and anguish, pain and joy. Tinged with a sadness that was also reticently uplifting (as heard on Something or Nothing“), Jacob captured a sprit that speaks to the heart. One filled with all the torment and illation of a young man coming to grips with himself and the world he inhabits.

Realising his music had potential, Jacob moved back to his hometown of Southampton and put together a band of old school friends and band-mates from former musical projects. Graham Poole was recruited to play lead guitar, Matthew Bishop playing bass, and Jacob’s then girlfriend Zealah Isabella Anstey on backing vocals. Together they briefly named themselves Netherlands, before settling on Pale Seas and began to rehearse Jacob’s songs.
