Premiere: S.O.S – ‘Bittersweet’

A succinct, potent debut single...

S.O.S is the alter ego of Sophie, a rising producer and songwriter with links to Malta.

A potent talent, debut single 'Bittersweet' is an amalgam of all the influences that run through her work – the pop sheen, the depth of the songwriting, and the crisp production itself.

Out on November 25th (order LINK), it's a song that works on many levels. Sophie explains that 'Bittersweet' "is about a man who has dedicated so much of his life to his job, professional status and wealth that his personal life has suffered as a consequence. He believes that the only way that he can get some love and feel some emotion is by paying for it."

"He becomes infatuated by this girl that he arranges to see on a regular basis, even though he keeps promising himself that each time will be the last. He knows that her time is limited and when they're done he is left feeling alone and empty inside. He longs to be back in her presence and finds himself continually falling back into temptation."

Tune in now.

Catch S.O.S at Leicester venue The Shed on November 17th.
