Aderyn releases her first single through Phwoar & Peace Records

Aderyn’s first release on the Phwoar & Peace roster, ‘Scotty‘ draws the songwriter’s love of grunge rock and indie-pop.

‘Scotty’ is a light-hearted pop song with a Star Trek reference but dig deeper and you’ll find musings on heartache and breakups.

Impressed by the great songwriting and quirky vocals on her first two self-released singles ‘Lucozade’ and ‘Silver Screen’ the label can’t wait to show you the great music she has up her sleeves.

“I was actually drunk when I wrote this song, which probably explains the mixture of brutal honesty and Star Trek references in the lyrics. I got back from the pub and picked up my guitar and all these feelings started pouring out.

This song is about the ‘eternal sunshine of the spotless mind’ feeling of wanting to erase someone from your memory because sometimes life gets so messy you can’t figure out another way to get over somebody. The tempo kicks up in the choruses, and that’s when the thumping drums and spacey guitars kick in” – Aderyn

Speaking about the new release, Adern shares,“The phrase ‘beam me up Scotty’ is one my Dad uses whenever something goes wrong, and I wanted to use it to represent that feeling of wanting to be taken totally out of a situation.

This song was influenced by the alien-esque imagery of Bowie, and I had fun bringing in different musical influences- the drums are quite indie disco, and the backing vocal harmonies have this fun 80s power pop vibe.

We added a bunch of ‘alien’ sounds on the guitars, and the mega guitar solo at the end is one of the funniest things ever to play live.”
