Protection is duo Iain Cook (Chvrches) and fellow Glaswegian musician and producer Scott Paterson. Born out of an initial exchange of music ideas between Cook and Paterson, Protection is the first time they have made music together. As the duo say:

“We’d been friends a really long time and hadn’t ever made any music together, so around springtime 2021, we started exchanging sketches, sharing turns working on tracks in our separate studios each day. The method we decided to try was to create a sort of musical foldover, like those games where someone would draw the head and you’d fold it over, and someone else would draw the legs. It means you can end up somewhere very different to where you started, it also helps to take the overthinking and seriousness out of the process.”
