MANOU??WE ARE??14th July 2014?
?Cool and dark, as her sound cuts sharp corners at every verse. The half German/half English singer mixes twinkling techno beats with her glossy voice to make music fit for a 21st century roller-disco.?Nylon Magazine
?A delicate slither of padded drums and cascading synths, anchored by Manou?s airy vocals?The Guardian
?A gimlet eye on global domination and the gold teeth that seem to come with it… I can?t wait to hear more?The Line of Best Fit
Manou aka Sophia Manou is set to release her single ‘We Are’ in July 2014. This punchy pop track groups Manou in the same camp as Iggy Azelea and Charlie XCX. We Are is a hymn to individuality. Manou says: ‘This song is about being an individual and being proud of it. I want people to love themselves for what they are, come as they are and not feel anyone has to conform to any ideas of a mass. I have just finished school and this song is my odd to everyone at college who should feel pressure of growing up and with standing your own grounds.’
We Are is the follow up to previous songs Loving you and Sadie, which dropped back in October and have already garnered over 85,000 plays mark on sound cloud since the release, as well as attracting the attention of the likes of The Guardian, NME, MTV etc drawing comparisons to fellow ?youngster? Lorde.
Described as ?Lykke Li meets TLC? , We Are blends perfectly the pop element with classic old skool rnb sounds. The man responsible for Manou?s instant 90?s throwback
pop sound is producer P*Nut who previous work include the likes of ?Amy Winehouse, Eliza Doolittle, Foxes etc.
We Are will be released on July 14th 2014.
