In The Spotlight

CVC – “Sophie”

Named after their town of origin Church Village and now based in Cardiff, this British six-piece collective forged a sound akin to the pop/rock of the 60s and 70s. Founded in 2020, they’ve been a staple of festivals such as The Great Escape and Reading & Leeds since. Inspired by Red Hot Chili Peppers, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young and The Beatles, they released their debut single “Docking The Pay” in 2022.

Written as a love letter to band member Daniel Jones’ girlfriend, who apparently is an amazing singer, but won’t sing in front of the band, their new single is a 60s-inspired psych-pop groove. Taken from their upcoming album “Get Real”, expected on January 13th, it’s the rich, countrified guitar, vitalizing percussion and emotive retro vocals, that douse this vintage-dipped tune in a psychedelic haze.
