Polly Scattergood Tickets

A fragile storytelling singer/songwriter from rural Essex, whose trembling vocals and soul-baring lyrics frequently prompt comparisons with Kate Bush and Tori Amos, Polly Scattergood has already proved to be one of 2009’s most exciting new names. She might sing about suicidal tendencies, sadness in the air, spitting on her French knickers and being called a whore, but she does so in such an idiosyncratically alluring, soft little-girl voice, one of ravaged innocence, and she places her startling images in such pretty pop contexts, that you can’t help being seduced.

Polly plays Crawdaddy in Dublin this Tuesday night and, thanks to POD, we have two pairs of tickets to pass on. Just send your name to giveaway@state.ie by 2pm on Tuesday.
