Still in relative musical infancy, Sophie and The Giants have made significant strides since their formation less than a year ago. Their humble begins can be traced to Sheffield where the band decided to commit themselves to a life on the road and began working with legendary frontman and bastion of Northern culture Jon McClure of Reverend & The Makers fame.
Since then Sophie and The Giants have toured with the likes of The Rifles, Findlay, Reverend & The Makers, Yonaka and Pretty Vicious; all the while honing their live set and continuing to create infectious pop sings with a DIY attitude. Their ensuing stage antics landed them a coveted support slot with Trampolene fronted by The Libertines tour poet Jack Jones and a spot at the prestigious Great Escape festival, solidifying their growing reputation as an exciting emerging talent.
“Monsters”, the band’s first offering, is an electrifying entrance filled with roaring guitars, soaring vocals and forward thinking production arrangements. Frontwoman Sophie, combines the intelligent ruminations of Florence Welch with the fem-punk attitude of Pat Benatar, steering her band in a bold and brave direction. This is the sound of the future; raw, voltaic, and full of promise.

Sophie & The Giants at NME AWARDS SHOWS, the shacklewell arms, London 24/01/2018
Combining the soulful vocals of Florence + the Machine with the muted pop sensibilities of London Grammar, Sophie and the Giants warmed us up good and proper with delightful ditties such as ‘Over the Moon’.
Singer Sophie Scott delivered impressive vocal acrobatics, while some of their pop confections ticked off finger clicks, plaintive piano chords and even a millennial whoop or two. Talk about a full house!...
Sophie & The Giants at #blogtober Festival, The Finsbury, London 26/10/17
Sophie & The Giants are new band perhaps in the style of The Sundays, Blondie and Dream Wife. They are an extremely tight four piece band with guitar, bass, drums and brilliantly charasmatic singer Sophie. Their mix of indie pop, bubblegum rock and solid pop songs is totally infectious and Sophie dances up a storm on stage and off it mingling in with everyone and singing away at the same time...

Since their set not so long ago at The Boileroom in May, the band have changed a lot. Which is weird, considering how good they were from the get go...
ALWAYS THE SUN FESTIVAL - PREVIEW
Sophie and the Giants
Sophie and the Giants tick all the boxes for anthemic indie-pop tunes. The quartet have just released the incredible new track ‘Lord Knows’ but are still very much in their infancy; we’re very excited to see them live this weekend.
LIVE REVIEW - Sophie and the giants @ The Boileroom, 30/05/16
Review by Lock In Music
This is a band that are so comfortable in their own skin and with each other that half of them played tonight’s gig barefoot, while the other half were sauntering around the stage as if they were casually jamming together at home. The first noticeable aspect of this band, is how can such an impassioned, ardent voice boom out of something so petite...

Review by Jasleen Dhindsa
For fans of: Florence + The Machine, Misty Miller, Swim Deep
Headlining Guildford’s The Boileroom are Sophie and The Giants, which is pretty mental considering they’ve only been a band for a few months.
Despite seeing vocalist/guitarist Sophie Scott before as a solo act at the Sister’s Unite gig at the same venue, and her poetic and releatable but mature lyrics are completely reimagined when accompanied by her fellow bandmates, or ‘The Giants’ per se. The band came to be at an end of year assessment last year and shortly got back together afterwards, deciding to be a proper band, and boy was that a good decision. Having switched guitarists about a month ago which altered the sound of the band, it’s technically only been a month since this version of Sophie and The Giants have been around...
