Sophie Koh has returned with her third solo album. In this album Sophie Koh has moved towards a more electronic sound. Within this style she has been able to explore all sorts of sounds and vibes with everything from folk, dance and pop. There is also a great range of bright poppy tunes and more dark and sombre ones each of which are delivered with great power and flair. Across the tracks, the major musical element is Sophie’s vocals which are full of life and beauty. In the brighter songs it is clear she is having a hot of fun with her work which translates into some really lively tune while in the darker tunes she pours in massive amounts of emotion to pull off some truly beautiful sound!
On and on is a slick electronic tune with a slightly dark feel to it, this is topped by Sophie’s beautiful vocals that have a slight chill to them while at the same time manage to dance along the tunes. Lip syncing is a more upbeat dancing piece. The sounds bounce around playfully which is complemented nicely with some bright and lively vocals. Lo-fi is perhaps Sophie’s most catchy pop tune yet sounding almost like Bow Wow Wow. The sound is really tight while the tunes are really infectiously catchy! I understand is a slower, more melancholy tune, Sophie pours in a heap of passion with a chilling breathy vocal delivery that is full of power and emotion! Middle of the night is a cute tune that starts off in a simple fashion but gradually grows in sound with Sophie’s voice increasing in volume to complement the music. You are is a bright, 80s style dance tune full of dazzling sounds, clever vocal efforts and catchy poppy beats on top! The album closes with the bright and catchy title track. Full of all manner of colour and life the track ensures the album finishes on a massive high!
This is yet another brilliant album full of some amazing sounds. Sophie Koh music has continued to grow covering a greater range of musical ground and pulling it great sounds effortlessly!
