Up-and-coming folk singer Lucy Rose is an oddly traditional tale of success. Leaving home at 18 to pursue a life in London, she began performing at open mic nights to much acclaim from locals. Then she met Jack Steadman, better known as the frontman from Bombay Bicycle Club. Lucy featured on the title track from the band’s sophomore album, ‘Flaws’, and has since been furthering her solo career with the release of debut single ‘Middle Of The Bed’. Now she’s back with ‘Scar’, a gorgeously wistful acoustic number that comes across as a slightly poppier Laura Marling. Lucy’s vocals are angelic yet somehow real enough to convey the emotion of the song. It’s a promising start from a hot young talent, and will no doubt get Lucy Rose on many ‘Tips For 2012′ lists. ‘Scar’ is released on November 14.
