Modern pop trailblazer, SOPHIE, has released her debut artist album OIL OF EVERY PEARL'S UN-INSIDES. The pop trailblazer has helped shape a unique niche within pop that others have either tried to bite or worth with and now it making her claim to the throne with this record in a complete, well worked thought.
The album isn’t just the soaring and searing synth chords that has been heard on past records and some of her collabs with others like Charli XCX (stan twitter is out for the album). There are the hard and jarring sounds on “Faceshopping” over scattered percussion, juxtaposed to the soft, personal lyrics and melodies of “It’s Ok To Cry.” She continues to keep the listener on their toes and interested in this sonically captivating album with the two wildly differing tracks “Not Okay” and Pretending.” Not Okay” brings grinding bass underneath underneath distant yells and flashes of differing percussion, before giving way to the slow building, soft and melodic “Pretending.”
‘Immaterial” is probably the most familiar song for those who may not know SOPHIE’s discography well and then she wraps it all up on the long and complex “Whole New World/Pretend World.”
