SOMOH Releases New Single ‘Favourite’
Out Now via DANCE TO THE RADIO Imprint Tiny Library Records
SOMOH shares nostalgia-tinged single ‘Favourite’, out now and released via Tiny Library Records (Far Caspian).
The moniker of singer-songwriter Sophia Mohan, SOMOH’s bedroom-pop/alt-rock sensibilities explore themes of love, hardship, friendships and family, all of which were present throughout 2022 debut EP ‘A Plan to Get Home’, attracting praise from key press titans (DIY, The Line Of Best Fit, Clash) and BBC Radio 1 support in the process.
Partnering once again with Irish songwriter and producer Joel Johnston (aka Far Caspian) and arriving via his imprint label Tiny Library Records, ‘Favourite’ sees SOMOH chanelling the likes of Beabadoobee, Soccer Mommy and Alex G with an explosive offering that marks the first reveal from her forthcoming second EP and precedes a full UK live run this autumn.
Speaking of her single release, SOMOH explained: “‘Favourite’ is about trying to feel a sense of validation through ‘fixing’ everyone’s problems but your own. There’s a childlike obsession that comes with having a saviour complex and I wanted to represent that in the artwork; a diary where you would write down your deepest, darkest secrets. The process of writing to releasing this song has been the fastest yet, but I think that speaks to how excited I am for where this next project is headed. You can expect a much fuller sound, as I lean more into alternative and rock influences.
The new single immediately jumps into its vivid vision, introducing the stunning vocal notes from the moment you hit play. Once those powerful and expressive harmonies hit the audience you are hypnotised by the affection that oozes from the range and the raw lyrics. Joined with this swirling and raucous instrumentation that grows with this gritty take and the tones deliver this nostalgic reflection. SOMOH has this incredible ability to not only connect to their audience but SOMOH powerfully displays vulnerability to enthral.
SOMOH’s ‘Favourite’ is out now via Tiny Library Records (Dance To The Radio imprint label) and available on all digital platforms.
