Copper Brown’s first single release ‘Sleep’ is a melodically haunting track that tackles the delicate issue of grief, anyone who has known any kind of loss will connect with.
While Sleep might appear an unconventional option to debut; the whole team felt so passionately about the song it was a natural first choice. Not only is it audibly gripping, Stella and the track itself represent the qualities championed here at Copper Brown, passion, talent and authenticity.

Singer / Songwriter
Stella Angelika is a London based singer-songwriter. With her idiosyncratically emotive voice and a cool blend of old school Soul, modern R’n’B and classical influences, Stella’s music is definitely something fresh.
But most important is her lyrical content; rich with the social, political and psychological ideas that have personally affected her. She sings with passion and compassion and she means every single word
After graduating from an eclectic course at the University of Hertfordshire, Will has since been producing exciting, vibrant music with a range of artists. He has shown versatility in his craft, by managing to mix and produce across multiple genres, always searching for the core message and absolute authenticity in each song…
Sleep is such a beautiful track, I wanted to be able to do Stella, and the song justice while tackling the overriding emotion in an understated way.
On hearing Stella’s ideas for the video it was clear we were creatively on the same page.
I think we successfully demonstrate the feelings of grief in the song and how it permeates everything you do throughout your day. Visually the video is an homage to the emotionally charged female anthems of the 90s, combining a slow flowing pace with quirky camera angles and a cool dusky colour grade to echo the drained feeling of loss.
