Heart-Shaped Scars is Dot Allison's first album in 12 years and her most personal to date. Dot's interests in music, literature, science and nature are integral to the overall aesthetic here. It's backdrop of exquisitely sparse and intoxicating dream-folk evokes Dot's vision for "a pure kind of album that musically imbues a return to nature. I wanted it to be comforting like a familiar in-utero heartbeat." The LP is produced by Allison alongside Fiona Cruickshank, with Hannah Peel adding string arrangements to four songs, courtesy of a quintet of Scottish folk musicians. Recorded at Castlesound Studios in Edinburgh - Dot's home town - the sessions include new collaborations with singer/songwriters Amy Bowman on "The Haunted" and Zoe Bestel on "Can You Hear Nature Sing?" Field recordings of birdsong, rivers and the ambience of The Hebrides also played their part. The influence of folk-minded artists in her record collection, such as Karen Dalton, Gene Clark, Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, Carole King, Nick Drake and Brian Wilson are evident but most poignantly is the late Andy Weatherall.
