Hailing from Elgin, Morayshire, Siobhan Wilson has been carving out a unique niche for herself since discovering music at an early age, first studying classical piano and cello, and later playing in youth orchestras across Scotland.

A moved to France was prompted her love of the country’s music, language and culture. Since returning to her native Scotland, Siobhan has made two EPs and a single that have received critical praise and radio play across the BBC network (Radio 1, Radio 2, Radio 6 Music, BBC Scotland).

Taken from her album, There Are No Saints, the video for ‘Dark Matter’ finds Siobhan contemplating the world and trials of everyday existence.

Siobhan explains: "'Dark Matter' is about all of the things you can never understand about life, time, space and people. The lyrics talk about the uncertainty and frustration of never truly knowing what is on somebody else's mind. It's an acceptance that no matter how hard you search, sometimes just don't find the answer."

The song’s weighty subject matter is belied by a gentle and almost soothing delivery and Siobhan’s dreamlike vocal performance. It’s certainly a song that’s worthy of your time, so you’re urged to make yourself comfortable and immerse yourself in a talent that’s likely to be here for some time to come.

You're also advised to catch Siobhan Wilson in action. She plays The Islington in London on July 29.
