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.

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...
'The Guildford four piece are sonically, wise beyond their years. Their hooks reel you in and the lyrics hold your attention in their expressive and relatable nature, painting pictures in your mind. Vocals soar, riffs groove and guitars yearn; and they've so quickly mastered the art of having a sound that's nearly impossible to pin down to an exact point. They're poppy, but still retain an impressive uniqueness. When melody and soft touches creep in, they turn a sharp corner and surprise you with an unexpected heaviness. Sophie and The Giants are unpredictable, in no way that's chaotic. This is just the beginning for one of the most authentic and exciting up and coming bands that there has been for a while. You haven't heard anything like this before.'
