Sophie Straat
ESNS: 2024
Pop Indie
Dutch folk singer Sophie Straat grew up at the end of the 90’s in the former, now gentrified working-class area de Pijp. Nowadays she writes, with her partner Wieger about the effects of gentrification in Amsterdam. Her songs give us insight into the lives of the owner of a ‘green cargo bike’, the employee of the Zuidas (financial district) and the child that has just moved to Amsterdam North. In March 2023, second album "Smartlap Is Niet Dood" came out on which the traditional smartlap was supplemented with more modern pop music.
