Rising north-east indie-rocker Sarah Johnsone releases her brand new single ‘Sofia’ via Quiet Crown.
While Johnsone’s alluring vocals may conjure the likes of Amy Winehouse with its loaded provocation and spacey vibe, the Newcastle-based artist’s punchy sound has more in common with music makers like Wet Leg, Siouxie and the Banshees, The Black Keys, Alice Phoebe Lou and The Police thanks to a defiantly angular alt. rock edge.
Sarah says, “‘Sofia’ is my indie rock, party track; she’s fun, she’s exciting, she’s unpredictable. Sofia represents many who are misunderstood by the male social structures around them, frequently feeling bored and dismayed in pursuit of romance. This track was one of the first I’ve written from a third person, storytelling perspective. It bore a story of the misunderstood and perennially addictive ‘cool’ girl, and the cookie cutter male chasers that can’t seem to get enough. The song flicks between a ‘beammeupsoftboi’ style account of the male fumbling attempt of seduction, and Sofia’s contempt for them.”
