Spending the last year cultivating a unique blend of punk and hyper pop, 17 year old artist Sophie Powers has just released her highly anticipated debut EP ‘Red In Revenge,’ now available via Set Records. Brimming with the spellbinding energy of her unique ‘hyper-punk’ hybrid and unique artistic vision, the collection is accompanied by the new release official music video for focus track ‘Breakup On The Weekend,’ co-directed and styled by Sophie herself.
The seven song collection includes stellar collaborations including ‘1 Thing’ with Kellin Quinn, which continued Sophie’s on-going conversation surrounding youth mental health; rock anthem ‘Greed,’ featuring fast-rising alternative singer/rapper DE’WAYNE; and ‘Clearview’ which features tour mate NOAHFINNCE. Her recent single ‘U Love It’ featuring rapper $atori Zoom laminated her unique hyper-punk genre. In addition to fan favourite ‘Life Goes On!!,’ Sophie has released two brand new tracks, ‘See Me!!’ and focus single ‘Breakup On The Weekend.’
“The song’s title summarizes my experience during the ending of a boring relationship,” Sophie shares about her new single. “In the song I explain how they were a good person, but just never wanted to do anything other than the two of us. I’m a very outgoing person and even though they say “opposites attract”, being in a relationship with someone more introverted than I was, was super hard. It’s a very real thing feeling stuck, and gathering the courage to move on from something/ someone that is dragging you down. ‘Breakup On The Weekend’ has a deep story behind its simple title and relatability, and for that reason I’m proud of myself for writing it.”
