Watch Sofia B’s video for ‘Soldiers’!
You can also stream Soldiers on Sofia’s SoundCloud page.
The atmosphere in The Big Easy had an inspiring effect on Sofia, surrounded by its creole delicacies, timeless music and amazing community spirit. She realised that, in spite of her personal problems, everyone faces their own internal battles making everybody soldiers against the challenges life presents. She found comfort in the realisation that no one has to face the fight alone, and decided to spread the message through her latest single.
Sofia sees herself first and foremost as a storyteller, using life as her inspiration and a flair for narrative that’s seen her compared to the likes of Kathleen Adams and Tegan & Sara. Soldiers is the second single from her EP In The City, which presents four illuminating slices of of Sofia’s life with stripped back pop arrangements built on folk foundations.
Sofia is also giving away free track, ‘King’, a Years & Years cover produced by Kandylion. A departure from her usual mellow acoustic sound, the chilled out dance track premiered on Clash Magazine‘s website, and you can download it for free via Sofia’s SoundCloud page.
The video for her previous single, Ice Cold Love, premiered on Gigslutz who described it as “a charming, catchy offering that will lodge itself in your ears for days after listening.” Watch the video now on Sofia’s YouTube channel and stream the single via the ABoF SoundCloud page.
Soldiers is released via Montiel Records on 18th September 2015.
