Alternative | Fiery Indie-Pop Artist Sophie Kilburn Shares Debut EP ‘My Room Made Public’

Posted by on September 12, 2021

Sophie’s new My Room Made Public, is a four-track EP with an indie-pop inspired style fused with a classic 70s flare throughout. It is a bold sonic fusion of old school rocker & modern pop warrior that sits neatly alongside ALT Pop heroes like Haim, Phoebe Bridgers and Soccer Mummy that have successfully contributed to a new genre that fits in both the past and the present, with a heavy emphasis on storytelling. Check out a thorough quote on the project after the jump and stream Sophie’s new EP above now.

“The concept of the EP started from my growing hunger turned obsession with wanting to be heard. What do I have to do to be really listened to, to be taken seriously as an artist, as a woman, as a person? How much do I have to share to feel like I’m enough? I spiraled, thinking ‘it’s just not in the cards for me’. The noise in my head got so loud that it really started to well… piss me off. I became acutely aware of how strong the pressure of sharing everything with everyone all the time is. There is this fear that if you don’t share it all your identity is no longer validated or worthwhile and that can be very dangerous. I don’t want to keep feeling that and I don’t want anyone else feeling that either. The project took on a whole new meaning when the pandemic hit and we were all forced to reflect on ourselves and the world we live in, it made me think well it is more relatable now than ever.  With My Room Made Public, I wanted to create a body of work that is an emotionally open and honest introduction to me as an artist and the songs I write. It is chapter one of what I  hope will become a classic trilogy. At the end of the day, I just want to bring emotional comfort and make people want to fight for what they want out of life, find themselves in their own way and to never settle for something that hurts them. I guess I am trying to do that for myself too  but there is always strength in numbers.”

The quality of bass music MA Music is dishing out is improving over time. Michael White’s new EP Never Look Back. Brings together several bass elements that aren’t the typical go around. MA Music is proving the are well aware of the trend and are seeking artists and music that fits. Never Look Back. is the well-put together blend of old and new styles, which is no wonder that MA locked him in.

Never Look Back pulls together bass house, party dubstep/trap hybrids, and an onslaught of heavy horns and grinding dubstep sounds to form the energetic experience that it is. Michael White has been picking up the pace this year; playing shows in Europe and climbing the ladder via intelligent collaborations. 2017 is looking good for this guy.

“Unravel” is the impressive debut single from a singer, songwriter, and producer who goes by the name JVLY. Based out of Sydney, Australia, JVLY gives us an intro into his chilled, atmospheric, electronic sound. JVLY says that the track is “about a search for solace, capturing a strange state of mind that’s somewhere between curious and aware. It questions morality and what we place importance on as humans.” The track is beautiful from start to finish, and JVLY’s soothing vocals really bring out the delicate instrumental of the piece. “Unravel” is definitely worth checking out, and I’m sure you’ll be looking forward to JVLY’s future releases as much as I am!

If you’re looking for something a little different to start off the week, check out this track by Krampf and Akeda, both from Paris. Although the track is in French, and I’m aware many of our readers are English speakers, the beat speaks for itself. Chill and trapped out, “Embrasse Moi (ft. Pendentif)” bounces along through a mixed series of drum variations that keep it interesting. The warped vocals give it an eerie background. If you’ve got the right speakers, this track has some deep bass all the way through. Grab it for free!

Progressive House | Syndec – Riptide

Syndec - Riptide

I am well aware that vocals on a progressive house track are straight ballin and what most people prefer but once in a while it’s nice to hear one without. When there’s no vocals it allows you to truly listen to the music instead of being focused on the singer’s voice. Syndec is an eighteen year old Swedish producer and he managed to do with “Riptide” what most progressive house producers cannot when it comes to making a non vocal track, keep it interesting. The song is driven by an excellent light melody and is structured in a way that it does not get boring.
