Having caught Sophie Cooper live a few times over the past couple of years we are pleased to announce her debut Rural Colours outing in the form of ‘Count the Days’. Sophie’s previous work has often focused on guitar as the main instrument, however as a trained trombone player, she has recently begun to explore the possibilities of this instrument, the pure yet deep tones being a natural ally for drone work.

Using the trombone alongside her ethereal vocal style, loop pedal and a couple of other gadgets, Sophie has created an atmospheric collection of pieces inspired by thoughts she had after a natural funeral ceremony she attended in the Hope Valley, a beautiful spot in Derbyshire. Captured by the idea that everything is eventually forgotten and recycled, Sophie has run with this concept in terms of creating loops and motifs that themselves are repeated and worked upon, the new ideas eventually engulfing the old.

The EP also features recordings of Sophie’s Grandad who worked in London as a piano player for silent films. With such a back story, the short vocal fragments act as a reminder to Sophie as well as the listener to always keep practicing and learning.

Numbered edition of 70 copies in hand printed sleeve.
