OUT NOW: Sophia Kennedy - "Being Special" (PAMPA029)
The April 2017 release of avant pop artist Sophia Kennedy’s self-titled album was a watershed moment for both the American-born artist and Pampa Records. Sophia Kennedy marked both the first singer-songwriter project for the Hamburg imprint, and the welcome debut of one of the most unique voices in German contemporary music. The symbiotic pairing is set to continue with a new 10” release from Sophia, as she continues to examine the art of leftfield song-crafting. In her hands nostalgic references and techniques are layered between off-the-wall arrangements, and while each composition is written in a unique musical lexicon, short repeating riffs and stanzas originating from keyboard and piano are her recurring motif of choice.
