Get to know Sophie:

Favourite Manchester band: It has to be Joy Division. I moved to Manchester in 2005 and I heard loads in The Star and Garter and I was hooked. There’s so much darkness in such beautiful songs and I love it .

Favourite Manchester song: From the best band from Manchester... She’s Lost Control vs Transmission! I can’t and won’t answer that.

Favourite place in Manchester for a dance: Anywhere that plays pure tunes - the grimier the better.

Favourite Manchester venue: The Apollo. It was the first venue I ever went to aged 13. It was Korn!!!! Love the history inside those walls.
