SOPHIE to play a few shows back in The Old Country this fall

I would like to take this opportunity to say that I’ve played SOPHIE’s “Is It Cold in the Water?” almost every day since the song revealed itself; the centerpiece of OIL OF EVERY PEARL’S UN-INSIDES restores my faith in the proposition that one can still employ traditional songwriting techniques in the service of creativity and change. On an album whose strengths rely so strongly on mood, sound design, and the empowering ideals the music lives and breathes, “Is It Cold in the Water?” manages to sneak in a classically-harmonized ecstasy of tension-building cadences and daring melodic leaps, and still somehow sound fresh and not at all out-of-place. If you’re still at all skeptical about the genius of SOPHIE’s full-length debut, give its epic fourth track another listen.

OR, if you’d like to check it out in a more personal way, say with SOPHIE standing right there in a big dark room in front of you, you too are in luck: in addition to to her North American mini-tour we posted about a few weeks back, SOPHIE will be performing in several European cities (and Tel Aviv, Israel) this October.
