Toronto electronic pop artist Scott Helman pushes his creative boundaries on latest single 'Pretty'.

If you're an avid follower of our little music blog, you may well recognise Scott Helman's distinctive sound from earlier in the year, when we featured the single 'Old Friends'.

Scott returns for the Autumn with his new release 'Pretty', and a boundary-pushing accompanying music video. Fans of Shawn Mendes and Selena Gomez will take comfort in the percussive instrumentation and heavily vocal-led nature of Helman's writing.

“This song was a big step for me in exploration and limits. I wanted to take myself as far as I could down the line of ‘uncomfortable’ while still maintaining what feels like me. Ultimately, I thought it was such a special thought – the idea that someone can be so beautiful that you just want a bit of them to become part of you."

Directed by collaborator Ben Knechtel, the music video sees Helman experimenting with an impressive array of looks that break gender norms in the search to what makes him feel most confident.

Catchy hooks and quirky lyrics make 'Pretty' one of the best pop songs to grace the blog this month. It's no wonder that hundreds of thousands of fans have caught onto it in just over a week! Keep a keen eye on this artist - he's destined for big things.
