Following the recent release of her first international single ‘Domino’, rising Finnish singer-songwriter Sofia is back with a brand new single, ‘Heavy’, taken from her upcoming debut EP.
The new cut is a layered, dark and soulful exploration into the vulnerability that comes from “feeling not enough for someone, no matter how hard you try”, reveals the 18-year-old singer-songwriter. Tapping into some smooth jazzy influences, ‘Heavy’ pop-tinged production - forged by renowned Finnish producer Matti Pitkänen - never overshadows the organic songwriting and arrangement, over which Sofia’s soulful vocals ooze languidly into neo-soul.
The mixed media stop-motion video created by producers and writers Ninni Wallin and Elias Kaus with photographer Jonne Heinonen for the single is a surreal journey into Sofia’s musical universe, incorporating animated cut-out animation art with shots of actress Ninni Wallin - who plays Sofia - the uncanny motion gives form to the artist’s lyrics and vocals, as she becomes immersed in her own visions come to life.
‘Heavy’ is certainly set to make Sofia into one of the most exciting fresh newcomers of 2019.
