Check out the Powers-directed music video now:
Less than a year since the release of her debut single, 17 year old Sophie Powers today announces that her debut EP ‘Red In Revenge’ will be released via Set Records on 22 April 2022. The news comes alongside the release of Sophie’s new single ‘U Love it’, which features alternative rapper $atori Zoom and is brimming with the spellbinding energy of Sophie Powers’ unique hyperpop-punk hybrid. She continues to control her artistic vision by directing the accompanying music video for the track and designing her look for the clip (as has been the case for all her music videos).
“The song title ‘U Love It’ alludes to the feminine power that the song itself carries,” says Sophie. “My intentions while writing this song were to prove that you can feel pretty and desirable while feeling dominant and powerful. Even with all of the amazing change happening right now, it still feels like there's a lot of stigma surrounding the idea that to feel "feminine" you cannot be strong and independent-minded. In the song, both lyrically and performance-wise, I try to embody Megan Fox’s character and persona in “Jennifer’s Body”, a girl-eater who is confident and beautiful. Not saying I'm confident 24/7, but when I do feel good or want to feel better about myself, this song would be the first one I would play. It's for the girls, gays, non-binary folk, and anyone and everyone in between who needs to be reminded of their power, and who they are!”
Sophie Powers is the bold voice of a new generation. She understands the unique pressures of modern girlhood and uses her experience to write unfiltered, devil-may-care anthems about the ups and downs of being yourself. Combining the edge of punk with vibrant hip-hop and pop influences, Powers is the sound of the future. She has amassed 200,000 monthly listeners and surpassed 2.5M streams on Spotify alone since releasing her debut single ‘Lonely Army’ last April.
Having released a banger of a track (‘Clearview’) together at the tail-end of 2021, Sophie Powers will be touring the UK in support of NOAHFINNCE in September 2022.
