Sophia‘s music expresses itself with an extraordinary depth and honesty. At the same time, they remain true to their melancholic indie folk over the years. True to their former MySpace motto: „Life. Death. And in between we have the desert.“
„Anyone who buys a Sophia record or attends a concert by this cult band around Robin Proper-Sheppard knows what to expect: Music for the melancholy moments of life. Some also think: indie rock for sad dumplings.“ (Hamburger Abendblatt)
With „As We Make Our Way (Unknown Harbours)“, you get closer to Proper-Sheppard‘s laughter than usual. No, it is by no means still a cheerful Sophia album, but at least one full of cautious hope and optimistic warmth of heart.
