"I caught a glimpse of dirt in my eye,  I caught a glimpse of God in my eye,  I caught a glimpse of Love in my eye.  I'm sat on a boat with a tiny little girl She stretches out her hand  She whispers to the earth And a firefly lands  She blew her wish away"

"I won't be here this time next week I know you've had a bad year  but for you the stars are still the same  and for me the stars are all the same"

Sophie Cooper is a West Yorkshire based musician influenced by psychedelic pop, weird noise and drone, whose main interest is in experimenting with conventional song writing. Cooper's music is written to reflect her life and more often than not is inspired by the people around her. The songs have a dreamlike quality, with sounds and vocals drifting in and out of clarity.  Cooper has been making music since her early teens and has been in a string of acts including Cooper Jones and Leopard Leg. This past year has seen her release two albums on the Exotic Pylon and Tor Press labels.

"(…) Cooper’s songs prize repetition but are happy to progress, forming folk mantras that recall the meditations of Fursaxa and the prayers of Richard Youngs. I could probably come up with another ten excellent antecedents to Cooper’s universal sound, but when I listen to Our Aquarius all I hear is her voice, in the many senses of that reverberant word." (Marc Masters, The Out Door - 200 words)

Sophie Cooper est une musicienne anglaise (chanteuse et multi-instrumentiste : guitare, trombone, melodica, shruti box, boucles et pédales d'effets...) originaire de Stoke-On-Trent, résidant désormais dans le West Yorshire (Todmorden), et active depuis plus d'une dizaine d'année sur la scène underground britanique.
Sa musique fait cohabiter astucieusement influences expérimentales (pop psychédélique, noise et musique drone) au sein de chansons à l'allure de classiques folk et pop.
Ses chansons aux qualités poétiques inspirées de son entourage proche, reflètent l'esprit d'artistes comme Reiko Kudo, Yo La Tengo, Arthur Russell, Spiritualized ou Alastair Galbraith.
Cooper fait de la musique depuis une quinzaine d'année et a sorti quelques albums solo ou en duo (Kelly Jones, Ben Nash) au format K7 ou CDr à édition ultra limités (Tor Press, Blackest Rainbow, Exotic Pylon). L'an dernier, elle a sorti un split K7 avec Ignatz sur le label Tor Press. Elle a partagé la scène avec des grands noms de la musique expérimentale de ces dernières années : Jack Rose, Okkyung Lee, Bridget Hayden, Josephine Foster, Chris Corsano, Phil Minton, Sunn O))) - pour n'en citer que quelques uns.
