Scott Mallard is a talented songwriter from Kent in England who has been writing, performing and releasing music as Sirens & Shelter since 2013. He has toured extensively throughout the UK, Germany, Spain and the USA playing original acoustic music. His incredible songs are at once singalong catchy and heart rendingly powerful.

If you’re a fan of the melodic acoustic hits from artists such as City and Colour and The Spill Canvas then Sirens & Shelter could be for you. This one man acoustic band stars the talented Scott Mallard, who writes and produces all his own original tracks. ‘Through The War’ is a playful album with ambient riffs and captivating melodies, and it’s not your usual emotional heart-wrenching acoustic record, making it just a bit different.

The record opens with ‘Black and Classic White’ a soft slow-paced hit, with a captivating harmonious melody and sweet vocals. This follows with a different style hit ‘90’s Song’, which is more upbeat and features powerful playful riffs, a sweeping melody and conveys a range of conflicting emotions.

’Through The War’ also features a special one off collaboration track with AJ Perdomo from The Dangerous Summer, which should instantly raise Sirens & Shelter’s profile with AJ’s fans giving it a listen.

The recommended listen is ‘Four2thefloor’  which has superb mesmerising riffs in time with wonderful sounds from the harmonica, adding that authentic country-like feel. The rhythm created by the talented instrumental playing is truly breathtaking. This carries on with another wonderful track‘Breathe’ which again features outstanding guitar riffs.

As the record progresses, the tracks definitely improve with more terrific hits such as ‘See You Soon’ and ‘Text.Pictures’ featuring poetic riffs and a light-hearted tune. 

’Through The War’ is a fantastic acoustic album that showcases Scott’s talent, and shows a promise for a bright future.
