Sophie Koh’s family comes from China, who then moved to Malaysia, then New Zealand, until finally settling down in Australia. From this wealth of cultural influences comes Sophie Koh’s unique and striking blend of indie pop. Backed by a crack team of musicians, she spread her jams during a recent national tour (her first) to nearly every city in China, and plans to return in six months.
Her songs are really, really good. Listen to them.
The Sound Stage Music Awards Show happened yesterday at Yugongyishan. Thanks to the bands that performed: The Twenties, Dirty Little Secret, Dream Spirit, Rolling Bowling, Misandao and Nova Heart. We’ll have more coverage later.
