Los Angeles songwriter Sophie Strauss does it her own way.
Upending convention and seeking out new spheres, her work has a touching lilt, and a devastating observational sense.
New project 'Hard Study' is incoming, with Sophie ready to share coruscating cut 'Aphids'.
A song about "feeling frustrated as fuck about the mythology of male genius and the leeway it affords men", it deftly moves beyond the barriers in her way.
She continues: "I wrote 'Aphids' as a rejection of the mythology of Male Genius and all the monstrous behaviour that title covers for. I think we are all done being anyone's muse."
