SOPHIE VAN HASSELT is an indie-pop singer and songwriter from Amsterdam, The Netherlands. A modern flower-child opening the doors to her highly imaginative world—full of songs to play, where she lives in day-dreams and quite figuratively “eats her own brain”.
She introduced us to her very first EP release named ‘Eat My Brain’ with themes on all things typical to a girl in her twenties. From layered vocals sounding like inner conversations to bouncing basslines, pulsating pads and quirky guitars playing in the background. Think of the ‘Swinging Sixties’ and a fusion of artists like Lily Allen and the Beach Boys' 'Smiley Smile'.
Sophie uses her DIY-ethic and the aspect of “reality shifting” to remind us that life is how you imagine it. Yet it is her outstandingly pure and playful voice that dances with us no matter what.
