FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE –

The musical talent known as Souls of Sophie has released his latest EP, “Departure.” The EP is comprised of five original songs for an approximate total listening time of 20 minutes. It has been released on the Modern Wave Records music label. Shadowy, smooth and darkly stylish, the “Departure” EP from Souls of Sophie stands as evidence that the effects of dark wave music are still thriving to the delight of thousands around the world.

An official bio from Souls of Sophie describes their music as modern-wave music. It describes modern wave as “cathartic post-punk delving in surreal sonic landscapes yet delivering a punchy sound.” The music is exceptional in its adherence to minimalist sound forms. It's spaciousness shows an adept use of quiet in bringing every note to the foreground, while its subtle melody lines manage to be both intuitive and remarkably catchy.

Souls of Sophie cite as main artistic influences many of the keystones of the sound, such as Depeche Mode, the Chameleons UK, the Cure, New Order, Joy Division, and Sisters of Mercy. While fans of these artists will undoubtedly appreciate Souls of Sophie's unique spin on the general mood and tone of the above, Souls of Sophie also admits inspiration from less obvious sources, such as James, Suede, Naked Eyes, Ocean Blue, OMD, Pixies, Radiohead, Slowdive, Erasure, and even the Sex Pistols, though fewer nods to these appear on “Departure” except thematically.

Regarding these overall themes, Souls of Sophie writes that “'Departure' is about escape: from your current situation ('Wonderland'), from your own mind ('Transition'), from material excess ('Nothing'), from your past ('Never Again').”

Each great escape is represented in its own dedicated song on the “Departure” EP. Only “Broken,” appropriately located at the dead center of the powerful little record, does not have an obvious tie to ideals of independence and egression.

Souls of Sophie is currently piloted as a solo project though the preceding record, the “Dusk” EP, was recorded with the collaboration of other members. The truth remains that Souls began as a one-man band, however.

“I taught myself how to play the guitar my junior year of college” writes Souls, “and then the year I 'took off' from school, I began recording songs using a primitive setup consisting of a dual tape deck and a bass amp. A year later, after graduating college and upgrading my studio (through the use of my first credit card!) I recorded my first set of songs released as Souls of Sophie, the band/project name inspired by a character from the movie 'The Razor’s Edge.'”

“Departure” by Souls of Sophie is available online worldwide beginning 4 April 2014. An official music video from SoS is also in production.
