Earlier this year, Sophia Knapp (Lights/Cliffie Swan) released her debut solo album, Into The Waves, on Drag City. Into The Waves is a pop vocal record of our time, reminiscent of melodic psych pop of the 60′s, Tropicalia ballads, chilly ’80s New York dance records, and the seduction of Stevie Nicks or Françoise Hardy. After releasing the video for “In Paper,” Sophia now shares “The Right Place” video. The video, which premiered yesterday via PAPER, was
co-directed by Dave Bryant and Ryan Hennesse.
WATCH/SHARE/POST SOPHIA KNAPP’S “THE RIGHT PLACE” VIDEO:
Sophia says “The Right Place” is about feeling alienated by external and internal sources – either from moving and feeling like a stranger in a new location, or physical changes that bring about feeling of disorientation. Sophia actually wrote the song while in recovery from eye surgery. Her outside world was distorted – one eye crystal clear and one fuzzy. As told to PAPER, “the song also references a time when I lived in Central America when I was 13, in the jungle, and enduring the horrors of puberty. I retreated to my fantasies, listening obsessively to cassette tapes of David Bowie, Iggy Pop, Lou Reed, etc., in fact constructing my own psychic reality very different from my physical circumstances. The goth makeup draws a reference to this fantasy.”
