Singer-songwriter Sofia Mills has released a new song “Bite” from her forthcoming debut album BABY MAGIC. Pre-orders for Baby Magic are available now HERE. The album will also have a vinyl release at a TBD date.
“When I reached high school, I would listen to my female friends complain about their boyfriends, who were all emotionally immature and unstable, and I couldn’t understand why they would waste their time on these idiotic boys instead of loving those who supported and loved them – like me. So, ‘Bite’ is a song written from the perspective of a young bisexual girl, such as myself, telling a friend to leave her boyfriend and be with her instead” Mills explains. “Girls know girls better than anyone, and especially throughout high school when people are exploring their sexualities and urges, I felt myself wanting to scream it from the rooftops.”
The debut album from 19-year-old artist Sofia Mills, Baby Magic intimately details the most pivotal moments in her coming-of-age experience: breakups with careless boyfriends, coming out as bisexual at age 15, a longtime struggle with mental illness. As shown on her breakthrough single “Coffee Breath” (a self-produced track that’s amassed nearly 100 million streams on Spotify to date), the Massachusetts-born singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist imbues her storytelling with both startling clarity and profound sensitivity, an element echoed in her warmly textured brand of indie-pop.
Written entirely by Mills, produced by John Mark Nelson (Taylor Swift, Allison Ponthier), and mixed by Jim Eno (Spoon), Baby Magic arrives as a complex and captivating body of work, built on a potent tension between her dreamy romanticism and intense self-awareness. The album takes its title from a gorgeously aching track graced with the delicate string work of composer Rob Moose (Phoebe Bridgers, Perfume Genius), a stunning backdrop to Mills’s self-revelation. Baby Magic is both a celebration of the magic of youth and an honest reflection on unstable relationships and “dating the worst boys in the world.”
