17 year old hyper-punk pop artist Sophie Powers has shared the music video for new single “Break Up On The Weekend.” Taken from her just-released debut EP, Red In Revenge the song chronicles on the ending of a doomed relationship. Watch the video now below.
Since her debut early last year, Sophie has been hard at work co-directing and styling each one of her music videos, and “Break Up On The Weekend” was no exception. “Filming the video was super fun since I designed the outfits for it and got to help style all the cast members. Most of the cast members were high schoolers who were actually my friends,” Sophie shares. “I like designing all my own music video outfits, but it’s even more fun styling other people. Everyone was super open to my stylistic ideas and Parker Harwood helped a lot with the styling for this one. Everyone was great and this was definitely one of the most fun music videos I’ve shot.”
“The song’s title summarizes my experience during the ending of a boring relationship,” Sophie shares about her new single. “In the song I explain how they were a good person, but just never wanted to do anything other than the two of us. I’m a very outgoing person and even though they say “opposites attract”, being in a relationship with someone more introverted than I was, was super hard. It’s a very real thing feeling stuck, and gathering the courage to move on from something/ someone that is dragging you down. Break Up On The Weekend has a deep story behind its simple title and relatability, and for that reason I’m proud of myself for writing it.”
