Scott Thompson is an electrifying force to be reckoned with in the vibrant music scene of Southern Florida. From a tender age of eleven, Scott’s deep passion for music was ignited, and the flames have only burned brighter since then. November of 2021 marked the birth of Scott’s official music career, and under the name “Recluse,” he has been making massive waves in the industry ever since. Scott’s creative genius is evident in his impressive repertoire of beat tapes and albums, including the awe-inspiring “White Peonies,” the soulful “Breakfast in Bed,” the spellbinding “RAINMAN,” and the captivating “The Ends of the Earth (Vol. 1).” Scott’s unique production style is a thing of beauty, featuring awe-inspiring reversed guitar and piano melodies that enrapture listeners and keep them hooked.

Scott Thompson’s journey to musical greatness reached a defining moment in April of 2022 when he collaborated with his partner Austin Bryant to release “Cold Winter Nights (feat. Blackgod).” The track captured the interest of many fans. Despite his primary focus on alternative pop music, Scott’s insatiable curiosity drives him to explore different styles and experiment with genre-bending tracks that leave listeners amazed. In December of 2022, Scott decided to archive all his previous releases and start fresh with the release of the excellent “stella.” The move showed his willingness to push boundaries and his desire to elevate his craft to new heights.

Scott Thompson is a multi-talented musician whose star power and boundless talent continue to amaze and inspire. His musical journey now continues with the 2-song single, “Poison”, and there is no doubt that it will leave an indelible mark on his catalog, moving forward. “Poison” is a powerful mid-tempo song with a catchy beat and poignant lyrics that delve into the complexities of a toxic relationship. Scott injects the song with his usual smooth and nuanced vocals, on a bed of warm and shimmering sound, backed by a throbbing beat.

The second track, “Poison – sped up” is exactly what the title indicates and really needs no explanation. All you need to do, is put your dancing shoes on, and vibe out to the skittering beat and racy rhythm.  The original song opens with Scott Thompson urging his partner to “pick your poison,” implying that their behavior is causing harm and that the singer has had enough. The repetition of the line “I’m gone” further emphasizes the decision to move on from this negative relationship.

The chorus “Feelin’ distant, baby, withdrawn, ’cause your attitude’s a turn-off (poison)” is a strong statement that highlights the effect of the partner’s behavior on the singer. The word “poison” is used as a metaphor for the toxic attitude and behavior that Scott Thompson can no longer tolerate.

The lines “Touch the starlight, touch the sky like, Stayin’ up all night, to drown out the daylight” suggest a desire to escape from the pain and frustration of the relationship, to find solace in something else. The repetition of “touch the starlight, touch the sky like” is evocative of a dreamlike state, a longing to break free from the negativity of the relationship.

The song is expertly crafted by Scott Thompson, with a repetitive structure that reinforces the message of the lyrics. The chorus, with its clear and concise message, is instantly memorable. The use of repetition throughout the song creates a sense of urgency and emphasizes Scott’s need to distance himself from his partner.

Overall, “Poison” is an impressive and engaging song that explores the emotional complexities of a toxic relationship. The lyrics are relatable and poignant, and the inebriating beat makes it an appealing listen. With this song, Scott Thompson gives us a powerful reminder that sometimes it’s necessary to cut toxic people out of our lives, even if it’s painful.
