Dutch singer-songwriter Sofie Letitre turned heads in 2012 when she released her debut album, Back Where We Come From. After contributing her musical skills to the Ladies Of The Lowlands collective, she embarked on a new artistic path with Thijs de Vlieger, from eclectic bass trio Noisia, and band colleague Ferdy van der Singel. The fruit of their collaboration can be heard in the deep bass track “Bare,” the lead single from her upcoming Uncanny Valley EP. It’s the perfect moody yin to the yang of “Slip,” a stark, moody gem which is available for free download.
