SOPHIA have added up and coming singer-songwriter M. CRAFT to the bill of their forthcoming show at the London Islington Academy on March 30th. Described as “loose threads of Sergio Mendez, Nick Drake, Stereolab, Neil Young, and Serge Gainsbourg woven into a modern romance, a perfect soundtrack to a low-lit bedroom or a hungover Sunday morning”, M. CRAFT – who released his debut through 679 last month – should pave the way magnificently for the grandiose and epic sounds of SOPHIA, whose new album PEOPLE ARE LIKE SEASONS has elicited some mighty fine responses from those prepared to step off the beaten track for more than a sniff of sump oil.
The show is part of SOPHIA’s first UK tour, which also coincides with the release of the band’s first single from the PEOPLE ARE LIKE SEASONS. OH MY LOVE will be released on April 5th 2004 on CD and 7″ single. The 7″ includes a cover of Tom Waits’ ‘I Hope That I Don’t Fall In Love With You’, whilst the CD single also features two other exclusive tracks, Genius and Someday.
The full line up of dates is as follows:
- Tue 30 Mar – LONDON Islington Academy
