Walsall UK born artist SC.Undercover started creating music as a way of escapism from the darker periods of his early life. The mysterious and sometimes flamboyant crossover artist blends characters and influences of indie, dark pop and R&B, offering something distinctly unique in today’s industry.
“Deal With The Devil” is the perfect amalgamation of atmospheric production meets R&B, in true SCU style his track takes unexpected twists and turns, mixing up his melodies and dynamics and adding to the knife-cutting apprehension. With fast, high-frequency beats, prowling guitar riffs and bass laced in haunting backing vocals reminiscent of The Weeknd, the single glides into a mesmerising break.
Shot across the tropics of Spain and the island of Mallorca, with Born Films, the music video for “Deal With The Devil” drips in James Bond edginess and tension. The cinematic aura carefully intertwines past projects as SCU explains, “We wanted the atmosphere to reflect the tone of the music but also provide the closing chapter in the trilogy of videos ranging from Darkness Before Light, Morals and finally now, Deal With The Devil”.
Also delving heavily this year into songwriting, the artist splits his time up working for other artists and producers in the UK and US, currently working with the production team of Grammy award-winning EDM DJ Benny Benassi, where he has been writing and singing for producer Riccardo Marchi. SCU’s music is a beautiful juxtaposition with upbeat dance/pop melodies complimenting the darker lyrical undertones of his previous work. Instantly recognisable, SCU has crafted an unmistakable sound.
Hoping to help others overcome their own struggles with mental health, SCU wants to share his experiences, shining light on a subject very close to his heart using his music as a platform to reach wider audiences. Having performed to sold out audiences across Atlanta and at home in the UK, as well as garnering acclaim from publications, SC.Undercover is labelled as an artist to watch.
