Sophie Kilburn is a singer-songwriter from Derbyshire, England.
Her music draws influence from alt-pop artists such as Haim and Maggie Rogers, who favour lyrics & storytelling as the emphasis for their songs.
Her newest song is ‘I’m In Love With My Therapist’ and was inspired by the second lockdown, she was annoyed at herself for killing yet another plant and the story of the song just fell from that frustration.
“When you go to therapy, you are trying to understand your emotions and behaviours, it is quite a morbid thought that the only person who you feel who gets you and you can share anything with, is your therapist.
They know everything about you, and you know nothing about them but the consistency of being emotionally intimate with them causes feelings to grow to the point of breaking point.”
‘I’m In Love With My Therapist’ sees Sophie Kilburn deliver vibrant vocals alongside catchy instrumental hooks.
The music video was shot with an all-female team led by DOP and Creative Director Marieke Macklon (Pixey, The Howlers), taking influence from the Truman Show and the reality TV world, exploring the obsessive nature of anxiety and depression and the longing to escape through self-made personas and relationships
