You haven’t heard them like this before, but you may already know the band. One is James Chapman, better known as Maps, whose critically acclaimed debut We Can Create was nominated for the Mercury Music Prize, and whose latest album Vicissitude, came out on Mute. The other is Polly Scattergood, the electrically charged artist who has released two solo albums on Mute.

The seeds of Chapman and Scattergood’s creative partnership were sown in 2011, at Mute’s Short Circuit festival, a special event at London's Roundhouse. The night saw different collaborations with Mute artists and Polly and James paired up to perform each other’s songs. 

onDeadWaves explain “Blue Inside is essentially about a loss – it’s that moment when you finally come out of the numbness and realise you can actually feel something. The song has a positive message though. It is about moving on, and continuing on the journey.”
