Where the intimate becomes alien - 9 postcards from the kitchen Lynch edge, angular DIY sketches that twist into the ethereal, strange-town budget pop transmissions through the looking glass…
Sophie Cooper is a musician from Stoke on Trent who now lives in West Yorkshire and Exotic Pylon is thrilled to be releasing her first cassette. Labyrinth inhabits a parallel sonic world universe to Pram – a sometimes menaced sometimes melancholy always warm world where clattering chaos and tender ambience serenely nestle within a secretive lo-fi production. With keys, guitar, tape, electronics, noise and sublimely captivating vocals Sophie presents 9 songs that blur late-night streets with ever unfolding internal alleyways as the world collapses in on itself and becomes dreamlike… Life in other wor(l)ds.
Sophie has been a member of, The Stoke on Trent Wind Orchestra, Cooper Jones, Leopard Leg, Tom Cool, Wing Horses, Remedial Queen of England and The A Band. Other musics include recorded duos with Ben Nash, Billy AB and a collaborative live project called Gals with Guitars.
