Sophie Longshaw is a twenty-year-old singer-songwriter from Sheffield (based in London) premiering her track ‘Let’s Go To The Beach’ today on The Indiependent.
Inspired by her trips to the North East coast when she was younger, Sophie penned the track when she was struggling with illness near her eighteenth birthday, and wanted to cheer herself up by thinking of happier times. Anyone who’s ever experienced a day at the British seaside will relate to the lyrics; from exploring rock-pools, to over-indulging in rock till you feel sick, Longshaw has captured the charm of this quintessentially British experience perfectly.
The melody is delicate and unobtrusive, allowing Sophie’s saccharine vocal to take centre stage. The mixing is excellent, crisp and clear just like the breeze by the beach Sophie sings about. The biggest shame about the release of this track is that summer is nearly over, as the floaty melody is perfect for summer playlists.
Sophie will release her Double A side single ‘In The Morning’ and ‘Let’s Go To The Beach’ tomorrow, in collaboration with Chris Mann of Twin Records and international music agency and record label DEFDISCO.
