Shit Hot Records Historical Archives

Sophie Smith ()

Erm history is pretty boring really. Aspire to jump off buildings, sing all day and night, eat vindaloos and see the Taj Mahal. Have been writing songs for 10 years and have got quite a collection, over an albums worth finished but many, many more dropping out of my head all the time. "Yet I am a white horse on the edge of reality, always feeling the pull of vertigo, always aware of the closeness and inevitability of my break against shore." I've decided to put myself under the genre of 'electroacoustic' because there was no other option which, when taken literally, sums up my music as effectively. My music combines the power and drive of sequenced beats and synthesisers with the emotion of singer/songwriter melodies and acoustic instruments. I have therefore taken the literal definition of electroacoustic meaning electronica and acoustica.

Inspiration: Tori Amos, Massive Attack, Portishead, Sneaker Pimps, Radioactive man, Aphex Twin, Lamb, Incubus, Smashing Pumpkins
