Scout Niblett - 'It's Up to Emma'Considering the first single from Scout Niblett‘s new album is simply called “Gun” and features sucker-punch drum fills alongside lines like “But I think I’m gonna buy me a gun/ A nice little silver one/ In a crowd someday/ You won’t see me coming anyway,” you better believe that her version of the TLC standard “No Scrubs” isn’t some novelty spin. As spare as ever, it’s dead serious about not wanting to waste one’s time with a revolving door of willful losers.
