SOPHIE is a well known pop producer in the underground pop scene. She just released a new track recently called “Faceshopping”. In order to understand how unbelievably awesome she is as well as how significant this new single is I am going to dive in on how SOPHIE came to her current form. SOPHIE is originally from Scotland and started her career by creating in a band called Motherland. Her music shifted when she met A.G Cook and Danny L. Harle. When this happened she started working with A.G. Cooks collective record label and genre PC Music. This is where her music bloomed to the loud bubbly unconventional sounds that she still creates to this date. One of SOPHIE’s biggest accomplishments strictly in terms of exposure was her song “Lemonade” appearing in a McDonalds commercial. As time goes on SOPHIE has been able to showcase her talent in 2015 with the release of “Product”. SOPHIE’s Product had a handful of anticipated tracks that were full of spark and emotion that most pop songs would claim to have. These tracks were known only by fans who heard hints of the track live on the rare occasion that SOPHIE would perform. SOPHIE brings to the table a harsher group of noises to fit that are a lot more loud and accurate to feelings that she experiences. As these sounds are not pop sounds SOPHIE manipulates the sounds to fit into the pop world that we are starting to see more of today.
SOPHIE’s identity was very ambitious for up until she released “It’s Okay to Cry”. The song was released with a video of SOPHIE coming out as a women. Before SOPHIE’s gender was never truly revealed to the media until this time. Her new song “Faceshopping” was a part of SOPHIE adding more to her narrative with onboarding someone to do the vocals along with the beat.
Faceshopping has been a song that SOPHIE has been holding onto for at least a year. Fans have heard of instances where she has mentioned the art of wanting to completely construct herself surgically. This song encompasses these emotions and while telling the listener that it’s okay to want to change what you look like to fit your own personality.
