Today XS Noize is pleased to premiere 'Indigo Fever' by Sophie Kilburn. Born in Derbyshire, Sophie Kilburn has been working tirelessly to create some of the most exciting & fiery alt-indie around in her upcoming EP My Room Made Public. It’s a project that unearths the fears of intimacy and the longing to be desired, through the vehicle of affecting powerful songwriting.
Sophie’s distinctive sound draws influence from across the indie rock and folk scene. Her main sonic inspiration comes from the likes of PJ Harvey, Florence & The Machine, Lana Del Rey and Alt-J, though her own sound also leans on elements of art-pop and blues. For Sophie, performing live is an essential cog in her creative output. Her mesmeric live performances have lead to shows at influential venues such as The Troubadour and The O2 Islington, she’s also shared the stage with (MBE) Shirley Collins at Camden Roundhouse, later ending her music residency there with a sold-out show.
Looking towards her own releases, Sophie is launching her project with her first single “Indigo Fever” this Autumn. Showcasing her undeniable songwriting talent, it’s an anthemic piece of Dark-Pop with lush hints of indie rock and folk instrumentation. It’s a track with a catchy, upbeat groove and fierce vocals. Showcasing exactly the sound and style, Sophie is bringing to her new project.
“The song is me asking how can I feel comfortable in myself when all I can think about is how people see me? Am I doing what I want or what I think people want me to do? It goes deeper than just wanting to be liked it is the overriding pressure to feel needed. I have been such a perfectionist with the song that I have had to force myself to say “enough Sophie it’s time to let it go!” so here you are.”
