Scar Releases Debut Single Paralyzing Via Platoon


Los Angeles, CA (March 16, 2024) – Scarlet Byford a.k.a. Scar, today released “Paralyzing,” the first single off her upcoming, debut project. Only 18 years old, the singer songwriter from London signed with the Platoon label in late 2023. A powerful and cathartic exploration of youth, “Paralyzing” is an emotive first experience for listeners that will stay with them long after the track is over.

Speaking to an internal battle within herself, the song describes the war waging inside and the difficulty faced in wanting to be things she’s not sure she can be. With explosive lyrics and a haunting piano accompaniment, “Paralyzing” is a commanding acoustic introduction to this incredible talent.

Says Scar about the track, “the song is about how overwhelming life and the pressures that come with it can be, and how sometimes your own fears and anxiety can stop you from doing the things you love. You find yourself in this kind of paralyzing state, which can feel really lonely and hard to get out of. But ultimately it’s about making that tough choice to keep fighting that battle going on in your mind.”

While a new artist, Scar is certainly no stranger to creating a fanbase. During the COVID-19 pandemic, she downloaded TikTok and began posting videos. Since then, due to her impressive vocal range and authenticity, she’s generated over 2.8M followers on TikTok alone. Not only gaining interest from Platoon, her raw, impactful content has attracted attention from notable artists including Justin Beiber, who have shared her music on their own channels in support.

Scar’s self-titled debut project, “SCAR” will premiere this fall via Platoon. Conscientiously created, the tracks were hand selected by Scarlet based solely on her love for them and their ability to connect with fans. With hopes of reaching those who might be struggling, Scar’s mission with her introductory work is to inspire and encourage listeners to find comfort and know that they’re not alone.
