Scarlette Fever, Kentish Town, July 2011, by Ray Burmiston

It’s raining. Bucketing. Torrential. A perfect summer’s day in London, of course. So thank God Scarlette Fever is sheltering inside, in the dark-panelled mansion of some distant aunt, with just her piano and reels of childhood Super 8 footage for company.

And no, before you ask, she’s not ‘Elated’, absolutely far from it…

“It’s basically a song about growing up. The stark reality that there isn’t always a happy ending, that dreams don’t always come true. Those of us who don’t go on the Jeremy Kyle show tend to put on a brave face; we ‘keep calm and carry on’. This is a song about what lies beneath.”
