Proving to be a force rising through the alternative scene, teen rocker Sophie Powers has had the industry buzzing since her spring debut. Sophie recently dropped her latest offering Clearview with online sensation NOAHFINNCE, following the announcement that she will be joining the pop-punk artist on his Anatomy of a Rat tour across the UK in January. The release is accompanied by a cinematic, high speed music video.
“I wanted the lyrics of this song to visually embody the feeling of leaving a bad situation,” Sophie explains on the new release. “I imagined a high speed car chase, where I’m being chased by someone toxic, trying to escape them. I felt like I was living this experience in real time for a while, and it was such a struggle to finally get rid of their negative energy. In the visual within the music video and lyrically, I finally get rid of the person chasing me, and they’re no longer in my rearview mirror, meaning I finally have a clear view.”
On the collaboration, NOAHFINNCE adds, “I had a great time working on Clearview with Sophie, excited for this ABSOLUTE BANGER to come out!”
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.
She will perform at The Key Club in Leeds on January 16th 2022.
