Rising star Sophie Powers has shared her newest single “U Love It” featuring rapped $atori Zoom. The track is brimming with the spellbinding energy of Powers’ unique hyperpop-punk hybrid and is paired with a powerful music video, in which she continues to control her artistic vision by directing the shoot and designing her wardrobe. Alongside the single release, Sophie has announced her debut EP, Red In Revenge, out April 22, 2022, via Set Records. The EP comes less than a year after Sophie’s debut single and will feature seven tracks.
“The song title ‘U Love It’ alludes to the feminine power that the song itself carries,” says Sophie on the new track. “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.”
She continues, “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!”
Having released the powerful track “Clearview” together at the tail-end of 2021, Sophie Powers will be touring the UK in support of NOAHFINNCE in September 2022.
At just 17 years old, Sophie Powers is a bold voice beyond her years. 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. One minute she’s confident and cool, with the sneering attitude of a punk rock front woman, and the next she’s vulnerable and raw, channeling the loneliness of contemporary life in a stirring ballad. Combining the crunchy sound of punk with today’s hip-hop and pop, Powers is the sound of the future.
