Sophie Kilburn drops her EP ‘My Room Made Public’, an edgy and impressive indie-pop debut that has received widespread acclaim and is available everywhere now.
London based but born in Derbyshire, Sophie’s music is introspective and gritty. Each track brings into focus a new subject, be it romantic relationships (‘Movements’), mental health issues (‘I’m In Love With My Therapist’), pressures of ambition (‘Ruthless’) or identity crisis (‘Under the Heat’). The production is guitar-based with pounding drum machines giving a nostalgic feel, powered through with catchy hooks and strong vocals. It is in the successful alt-pop bracket as HAIM or Soccer Mommy and wouldn’t seem out of place supporting either.
“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. 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.”
Garnering much support from publications including Complex, BBC Introducing and XS Noize, while Clash called her “something special”. Without a doubt, Sophie Kilburn is a very exciting musical prospect and ‘My Room Made Public’ an example of her prodigious talent.
