Spending the last year cultivating a unique blend of punk and hyper pop, 17 year old artist Sophie Powers releases her highly anticipated debut EP Red in Revenge, available today via Set Records. Brimming with the spellbinding energy of her unique “hyper-punk” hybrid and unique artistic vision, the release will be followed by the official music video for focus track “Breakup On The Weekend,” co-directed and styled by Sophie herself.
The EP follows Sophie’s adolescent exploits; from ending relationships and friendships, to finding your confidence and dealing with the challenges growing up. “After turning 16, I quickly realized the world was not the place I was told it would be,” she shares.
“It’s not easy to make your dreams come true – it’s not even easy to dream – which made me angry. Red In Revenge represents the angry, depressive and anxious state I was in while realizing this, as well as the state I was in while struggling to find confidence and place in society as a teenage girl, pursuing my dream, living alone in another country, far from home/the norm.“
