After five years out of the spotlight, Sophie Jamieson has returned with brand new track ‘Hammer’. Our first glimpse into a bigger body of work, this beautiful new song sees Sophie back doing what she does best, delivering the goods with her gorgeous ethereal style and raw lyricism.

“This is the first in a wider group of songs that explore self-destruction, self-medication, and trying to understand how to cope,” she explains. “This song is a window into the less positive or constructive ways of dealing with overwhelming feelings. But most of all it’s about accepting them.

I’ve changed a vast amount since the songs I wrote 5, 6, 7 years ago…but I’ve kept a fascination for the ugliest of human emotions. The ones you keep to yourself. Because those eat you up from the inside…and the ones that bring comfort when you hear them from someone else’s mouth. They’re the emotions I strain to hear in other people’s music, and which ultimately, are evidence of our humanity. To accept them, to see their complexity and ultimately their beauty is one of the most peaceful things I think you can do.”

When Sophie Jamieson began writing songs, she began sketching out her thoughts, what emerged was just like any other aspiring artist. An absorbing style, formula, cliche, the young singer quickly realised that what counted, what stood out in the long run was her own voice, Driving her material in a stark, deeply affecting direction, Sophie Jamieson has quickly matured into something quite special.

Darkly noir pop music crafted on acoustic guitar, comparisons have been made to Daughter in her ability to make the turmoil of the soul appear hopelessly glamorous.

The single ‘Stain’ is lyrically bleak, with Sophie Jamieson’s vocal performance being unusually direct. Musically, the arrangement is sparse, with the emphasis on space almost as an instrument in itself. Its completely beguiling, deeply involving songwriting, ‘Stain’ came out via Luv Luv Luv.

Sophie Jamieson has been one of our favourite artists for quite some time ,As far back as December 2012 I had heard some songs she recorded for a session on Amazing Radio on the Simon Raymonde Radio Show . Since then Sophie has released a string of excellent singles, put a band together and expanded her sound exponentially.
The song itself exudes intricacy and melancholy in a similar way to artists such as the sound of Daughter or Marika Hackman.

Sophie Jamieson still shockingly the young singer songwriter introduced herself in dramatic fashion via excellent debut single ‘Stain/Other’ earlier this summer. Softly inspiring, her folk hued tones were matched against a quiet intensity. Still working on her craft, the new EP ‘Take’ will be released on December 8th.

Ahead of this, Sophie Jamieson has placed the title track online. There are shades of Anna Calvi, Daughter here, or even PJ Harvey, with the singer seeming to rapidly mature.Lyrically, ‘Take’ pulls no punches with the beauty of the arrangement set against the emotional impact of the delivery.
