SONG PICK: Sophie Strauss – Aphids (from new album Hard Study)
“You cover me in aphids” – it is not pleasant image that Sophie Strauss invokes in her song “Aphids”. The track is about being fed up that women are expected to play the second fiddle and serve as an inspiration and muses for male “geniuses”, something that is clearly still prevalent in the music business. Let’s make some progress here in 2019!
“Aphids” is a song off Sophie’s reflective and political new album “Hard Study” (Apple Music | Spotify). Reminiscent of Suzanne Vega, Her way of a friendly, gentle vocal delivery makes them even more effective once you listen closer.
