young folk artists has produced a timeless debut album, inspired by story-driven traditional folk-ballads, shone through the lens of punk
DIY ethos. Sofia took inspiration fromstory-driven traditional folk ballads and shone them through the lens of a punk DIY ethos. The
album name comes from the ritual of daily bathing, a whimsical place where most of the lyrics were written. The album deals with the
ways in which women’s voices, stories and desires have been sidelined and misrepresented throughout history. “Think Jesus and Mary
