'Need is All You Love' is the second LP release from passion pop three-piece, Sofie Tucker. Laced with tight, tasty harmonies, sweetly singing to shitty screaming guitar, a prankish spattering of piano, and a driving and inventive bass and drum backbone, this collection is a bittersweet, textured collage of emotion and style, ranging from bouncy melodic pop to passionate punk rock rebellion without self-indulgence, or apology.
All songs are written by Aaron Mannino whose process has been an organic amalgamation of influences from The Beatles, The Jam, to Nirvana and beyond, emerging on its own, without any conscious pretense of its heritage. Lyrics are substantive, provocative, and candid, sustained and made memorable by melodic hooks and incisive rhythms given a fresh face and evolution in Sofie Tucker.
Sofie Tucker is Aaron Mannino -guitar, vocals, piano, keyboards, harmonica; Jimmy Carroll (from neo-punk band, The Search)-bass guitar, and Kirk Stanford -- drums and percussion.
