Faded to Treetops
What makes “Mariposa” such a fascinated listen is just everything about it. There is a lot of good things within the vocals, the lyrics, and instrumentation. The feel-good instrumentation features a light-sounded electric guitar with bold power chords played by the piano. The combination with the guitar, the piano, and the drums makes the sound feel so light-hearted and relaxed.
The vocals also hold a feel-good vibe that makes the listener feel good and relaxed. Talking To Sophie’s vocals are light, warm, and smooth that create that feel good vibe. Their tone also support the lyric’s story about looking at daily life in a whimsical way. The combination of the lyric’s story and the vocals remind me of the experience of just sitting in a forest, sensing everything with all five senses: taking life slowly and looking at every detail.

About the Artist: Talking To Sophie
Klingklang! Talking To Sophie creates Klingklang, wrapped in pop structures, and dizzying sound scramble. After months of playful experiments in the studio Talking To Sophie, alias Marcel Krell releases the self-produced debut album onto multifaceted german stages, whether great or small. Supported by lights, friends, and delight a unique sound art is created with alternating orchestration.
It all started by creating cover songs of the very first self-bought record; songs sung by the boyhood idol. The resulting versions of those songs consisted of power chords and squealing solo action (autodidactic, of course!). Two years later the first band assembled, which would eventually also turn out to be the last.
Five years later, between pop-rock and acoustic shows; after tiring band practice and touring the Brandenburg suburbs, it was time for a new beginning. The band leader now had to shift for himself. This is the story of how Talking To Sophie was created; the self-realization in image and sound.
