The Scruff Neil McCarty
The Scruff, by Neil McCarty

One of the most stunningly sentimental and emotionally evocative releases of last year was Her from The Scruff, a touching and poignant track written about, quite simply, your mum. Honest and raw, the track is very different from the usual rowdy raucousness the band tend to encompass in their music; there’s a rippled delicate fragility to it, and the lyrical openness and relatable nature made it a stand out track from the off.

Discussing the single, Adam explained I mean you can write songs all day about doing drugs and how fucking rock’n’roll you are like heavy nights out etc, but every now and then it’s nice to do something about like being nice to people,’ Omar adding ‘It was written shortly after I lost my Mum at the beginning of last year, and it’s quite fucking hard hitting to be honest, it’s not really like anything we’ve done before’

In honour of the nature of the single, The Scruff have launched a competition for their fans this Mother’s Day, where you could win the opportunity for the band to come to your living room and perform an acoustic version of Her for you and your mum, now how lovely is that?
