Sophomore – It Hurts – Audio

It was back in 2015 that the Swedish triphop project Sophomore last featured.

The latest track to surface – It Hurts – unfurls slowly like an emblem carried on a light breeze undulating around a pole.

The hypnotic, melting, electronica seeps in to the arterial system like an anaesthetic calmly slowing down the functions of the body and mind.

The sounds daub flecks of sparkle as they land across the room as Sophomore creates music which always contains an unintended twist and for the very nature of the creative process, gives the loops of sound a warming context into which the listener can curl up and permit the combinations of pastel and iridescent electronics to wash across the ears.

The sloth like progressions are given plenty of room to envelope the audience in their folding silk, yet the slow-motion development doesn’t find the brain wanting to chase along the numbers, rather entices the synapses to decelerate to match the unfurling gossamer.

If you are hurrying to put together a collection of material from an impromptu house party, Sophomore, is not to be added by error. However, if are you looking to take material for the after-party pre-dawn accompaniment, this you should gather by the bushel to add an intoxicating palette of sound to the developing light, which reflects of the breaking sunrise, in which ever of the vagaries of light it may occur.

There are underlying contexts of intended travel as Sophomore records and plays all material live, resulting in each iteration being slightly different from the other despite it being computer generated, which gives a refreshing change to the normalcy of the style.
