Living in the Dark is a mellow melodic song recorded at Red Sand Studios in the Chorlton area of Manchester and produced by Mathieu Garcia and was accompanied by a video available on YouTube. Scott is working on a full album with Mathieu producing, with the majority of the 10 intended tracks already finished.
'Living In The Dark' follows the story of someone who has become a recluse. A person who was once a part of your life. He is "a talented man", who's life has "gone astray" and now "hides away", as heard in the lyrics. It's a song about lost friendships and also how someone's life can turn for the worst at any moment and leave them Living In The Dark.
Scott's previous single Down to Earth, released in September, has attracted attention from radio including Brian's Indie Show on Radio Chaos
Karibou, based in France and an independent radio station in Manchester gave it a few spins.

I still do as much work and self-promotion as I've done in the past, it's just now I've got someone doing more and helping me."
