Press Release:

Sophie Burbery and Little Bark May 2011 Tour

Little Bark “...the love-child of an unholy coupling between Cyndi Lauper and the Pet Shop Boys.” (CD of the Week) Grant Smithies, Sunday Star Times

Sophie Burbery “Curious, fantastical songs..like falling through clouds. ” Nick Bollinger, Radio New Zealand

Ethereal pop princess Sophie Burbery and her sylvan alter ego, Little Bark, will both be playing sets on their May tour, with support from a full band playing songs from the debut album ‘Hope is Rubbery’ including the latest single from Little Bark ‘In the Forest’. The tour spans both Islands, with seven dates over two weeks with support from Watercolours, Glass Vaults, Robert Scott and Delaney Davidson on selected dates.

Little Bark is Sophie’s super hero alter ego. She gained her powers from a terrible accident with an exploding mirrorball. With the aid of magical forest creatures, in a radioactive wilderness, she learned to harness them. If you want to party then this strange sylvan creature is your friend. “Deliciously poppy and sugary sweet Little Bark’s catchy hooks are in abundance, making the beats of these five tracks instantly infectious” (NZ Musician).

The second persona is Sophie Burbery, the Lois Lane to Little Bark. Sophie Burbery’s songs were described by Nick Bollinger as being “vaporous and ethereal, taking you on a journey through rootlessness and transformation”. Sophie Burbery shows a more reflective and personal approach to songwriting. It highlights her whimsical vocals, resulting in a dreamy, yet expressive set of songs with Grant Smithies likening the vocal to that of Kate Bush.

The dates are:

Thursday, May 12 - The Playhouse Café, Nelson
Friday, May 13 - Wunderbar, Lyttelton – with Delaney Davidson
Saturday, May 14 - Chicks Hotel, Dunedin - with Robert Scott
Sunday, May 15 - Le Cafe – Picton
Friday, May 20 - Mighty Mighty, Wellington – with Glass Vaults
Friday, May 27- Cassette Nine, Auckland – with Watercolours
Saturday, May 28 - Leigh Sawmill, Leigh – with Watercolours

Sophie and Little Bark’s album ‘Hope is Rubbery’ is available for purchase on itunes, smokecds.com. bandcamp, and all good record stores.
