Sophie Coran releases intimate live performance of single “Circles”
Philly singer-songwriter Sophie Coran channeled the intimate soul of her music into a live performance of her previously released single “Circles.”
In the performance, Coran is joined by collaborator Shelby Yamin on the violin while she plays keys and delivers clear and breathy vocals. The soft-lit studio space at Treacle Mine Recording, where Michael Cumming mixed and recorded the audio, and panning video filmed by Wil.D enhances the sense of emotion and intimacy narrated in the track’s lyrics.
Coran spoke about “Circles” in a press release:
“I knew that I wanted to work on a stripped back arrangement of this song with my dear friend Shelby, especially since it originated on the piano. ‘Circles’ is a tragic love song, and having a version of it for solo violin and keys emphasizes the idea of longing, making it even more intimate. I had arranged the strings for the studio version and then Shelby developed her part for this, making it really special. We filmed the video with Will at Treacle Mine Recording in Philadelphia, where I do most of my recording and rehearsing with my band. It was really fun to have this all come together the way it did, as a glance into my life with my musical and creative collaborators.”
