Just Listen: Sophie and the Giants – Right Now

Sophie and the Giants

Right Now

Sophie and the Giants are one of my fave bands of the last few years and a band I can’t wait to see them play live again and to listen to their new release Right Now, has made me even more excited for that day. There’s more of a pop vibe to this release though, and for a winter track there’s a  tropical disco feel to it –  almost reminds me of early doors Fickle Friends.

There is a definite shift to this sound to the harder-edged tracks of Sophie and her giants of the past but the more I listened the harder I fell under their spell. There isn’t the Bulldog swagger but there have been serious nods toward this direction, especially in 2019 track Runaway. You can hardly blame them for this step, given the huge success of their collaboration with Purple Disco Machine last year. I fear that when I do get to see them live again that I am going to have to share that experience with substantially larger crowds than I have had to do to date and well deserved it will be too.
