Sophia - Oh My Love - Single Review

Sophia
Oh My Love
(City Slang 05/04/04)

Former God Machine main man Robert Proper–Sheppard and a gathering of musicians flit between the indie and pop genre in this maudlin, acoustic fuelled single that is a touching if a little laboured balled about love and the consequences of it. Proper-Sheppard still sings as though he is haunted sounding like Fran Healy and Gary Lightbody (Snow Patrol) with a drop of Aaron Price included, resulting in a battle between compelling and tedious with a resulting 0-0 draw.

Sophia - Oh My Love - Single Review

In a defiant stance against the grabbing industry Sophia give us not one, not two, but three B-sides in this single extracted from their ‘People Are Like Seasons’ album. Unfortunately, their laboured acoustic fuelled manner and the fact that Proper-Shephard’s vocals get slightly whineier it represents a pyrrhic victory for the value for money seekers.
