Bio

Poppongene is the solo project of Melbourne artist and multi-instrumentalist Sophie Treloar (also of Melbourne outfit Sunbeam Sound Machine) Poppongene's music is laconic and hypnotic, sun-soaked and lush.

Debut single “Do It, Girl” is self-affirming and and aspirational, described by 3RRR’s Simon Winkler as an “absorbing psychedelic adventure”. Along with heavy-lidded second single “Belgravey” and the summer vibez jam 'Esky'. These are the first tastes of Poppongene. With snippets more to come in late 2018 and a whole lot more in 2019 - stay tuned

I'm all about that squiggly guitar noodling away on this one. What a gem you are, Sophie.
