We’ve been waiting a very long time for this, but trust us it’s worth it.
Since Sophie-Rose’s first appearance on Breaking More Waves way back in 2010 her musical journey now seems to be reaching some sort of important point on the map. Thinking Of You is the debut single from her band The Night VI. If that name seems vaguely familiar it’s because we featured the group when they were just known as The Night and named them as one of our ones to watch for 2013. Here’s why.
Thinking Of You is an intoxicating song that takes the dreamy glow of new hype kids on the block London Grammar, adds some guitar work similar to The XX and presses it tenderly together with the classic sounds of Fleetwood Mac. What can we say? It’s preciously seductive.
Thinking Of You is according to Sophie-Rose ‘representing a finite moment – perhaps an hour of your life; you’re missing the person that you love and at the same time hating them for making you feel that way.’ That’s an emotionally raw concept and maybe sounds just a little bit needy and obsessive, but if it helps create songs like this then we’re happy that Sophie-Rose had to feel that way.
