It's hard to believe but we're nearing the end of Music Box season 2, with this stunning session from Swedish artist SKOTT one of the last of the series.

We've seen a whole host of Nordic female artists emerge with some of the year's best pop music: SKOTT, Sigrid, Dagny, Zara Larsson and Alma to name but a few.

SKOTT told The Independent in a feature earlier this year that it was "unreal" to think about how she had already received support from the likes of Lorde and Katy Perry.

Her musical inspiration comes from an unconventional childhood where she grew up in what she calls a "traditional village" run by outcast folk musicians.

"It wasn't like a commune where you share everything like hippies. We have a food store and stuff, we don't trade. But we didn't have a radio, so I didn't listen to much pop when I was a kid.

"I found the melancholic, sad folk songs so beautiful as a kid and wanted to write my own ones like them. When you start writing on violin there are no chords so the melodies have to be strong on their own."

SKOTT performed three original songs in her Music Box session: 'Porcelain", "Crime' and "Wolf" - each one is stunning and we hope you enjoy.
