At the heart of it all is pop’s most captivating new frontperson, whose teenage life is chronicled with unflinching honesty on Sophie & The Giants’ debut EP Adolescence. “We’d love to be a pop band that makes a difference by making music human again,” Sophie adds. “Every song I’ve written is from an experiences I’ve had; human mistakes that I’ve made and lived through.” For instance Space Girl, in which Sophie debates “spending your whole childhood aspiring to be something, then when it starts happening you begin to wonder if you are capable, and if after all, it’s what you really want”. But the Adolescence EP is not about wallowing and it’s certainly not about admitting defeat. It’s about coming out fighting. The spiky fury of Bulldog, which documents the time a friend of the band was assaulted by their partner, is proof of that.
