Suburban RnB // Organic Trip-Hop
Lovelorn grooves imbued with timeless themes of learning to love and finding balance. Singer-songwriter Sophie Moreau Parent's project, The Sophistocrats have been active since March 2016. Together, their debut EP, is scheduled to be released on April 2nd, 2018. Distilled lyricism and straightforward hooks; written from a millennial woman's point of view, it's about knowing yourself, taking action and facing destructive thought patterns.
The Sophistocrats spent multiple years studying contemporary music together at Selkirk College in Nelson, BC. They have opened for Dirty Mountain, Friends Of Foes, FBK, Living Hour, Steph MacPherson and Charlie Jacobson and toured with The Racket.
