Song of the Day: Heavy – Sofia

After making an impressive entry on NEW LEASE MUSIC with 2018 offering, ‘Domino’ – her first international single – Finnish songstress/songwriter SOFIA returns, this time in today’s hotspot, with single ‘Heavy’.

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. 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.

‘Heavy’ is from her new EP, out today. Check out the video for single below:

New Track: Domino – Sofia

Rising young Finnish singer-songwriter SOFIA, may just be 18 years old but she’s mature beyond her years. A singer since she was little, the Helsinki born artist is now ready to step into the spotlight with her brand new single ‘Domino’.

Previous singles, ‘Underwater’ and ‘Your Arms’, earned her early support from key Spotify ‘New Music Friday’ and key Finnish influencers, with heavy rotation from the largest Finnish tastemaker radio Yle X.

With ‘Domino’ being her international debut, there’s not much to know about Sofia, but her effortless honeyed vocals and honest lyricism reveal a mature songwriter able to express her most intimate feelings. Somewhere between Billie Eilish haunting ballads, Khalid’s pop-inflected R&B and Anne-Marie’s truth-telling, SOFIA is on the right path to becoming the next Nordic-pop sensation.
