“A tender return”
Sophie Jamieson has shared her second EP of 2020, ‘Release’, and revealed its final song ‘The End of The Road’.
Produced by Steph Marziano (Hayley Williams, Gia Ford, Lapsley), 'Release' reflects on a period of intense loneliness, spiralling and self-destruction.
Jamieson actually started her music career as a nu-folk artist and supported the likes of Marika Hackman and Pale Seas. She then, however, took a five-year break from music, returning at the end of last year with an increased emotional intensity and a new electronic-leaning sound.
That return was welcomed far and wide. Charlie Cunningham invited her to play a string of European shows, the pair going on to write ‘Climb’ together - a track now with almost a million streams. Jamieson was also set to support Samantha Crain off the back of an invite from Crain’s label boss, Lucy Rose, before that fell victim to covid19.
‘The End of the Road’ is the final track to be released from the EP, following previous singles ‘Forward’, ‘Release’ and ‘Concrete’.
Of the track, she says: “People talk all the time about how important exercise is when you are feeling depressed, but rarely do they talk about how difficult it is when your mind is telling your body not to bother.
“There was a period where every other time I got dressed to go running, I would get as far as the end of my road and have to stop and give up, my body too heavy to carry me though I was desperate for the release.”
