We're going to reverse roles here. Listen to Sophie Madeleine's "Oil & Gold" below.
Good, isn't it?
Now, about Sophie Madeleine. The Ukulele-toting, British songstress is gearing up for the U.S. release of her sophomore album, The Rhythm You Started, due Sept. 11 on Xtra Mile Recordings/ILG. "Oil & Gold" is the first single from the album.
An experimentation with rhythm, The Rhythm You Started is a refreshing mix of timeless folk-pop songwriting with an uplifting indie synth edge. The multi-instrumentalist seamlessly weaves percussion loops and drum machines together with ukulele, violin, and sweet vocal harmonies. This summery blend is tied together by her disarming vocal. Its feather-light vibrato complements vivid metaphors and hook-laden melodies.
After self-producing the 10-track album from her living room in Brighton, Madeleine sought out the mixing expertise of esteemed producer Danton Supple. His previous credits include Coldplay, Thirteen Senses, Tenderfoot and Electric Soft Parade.
Prior to signing with Xtra Mile, Madeleine sold out a limited run of The Rhythm You Started, personally mailing copies to fans in 27 countries on five continents.
