Sophie Jamieson / Continues return with new single 'Release'
Following a five-year break from music, Sophie Jamieson continues her return with new single ‘Release’ - the second single from her EP of the same name, due December 01.
First emerging at 22-years-old, Jamieson’s debut EP ‘Where’ resulted in wide-acclaim and sought-after tour support slots with the likes of Marika Hackman and Pale Seas.
A disastrous recording session of her follow up, however, contributed to a breakdown which took Jamieson away from music.
Her return last year was welcomed far and wide. Charlie Cunningham invited her to play a string of European shows with him, 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.
On new single ‘Release’, Jamieson simultaneously searches for peace and toys with her inner chaos.
“This song is a search for peace by any means necessary. I wanted to escape how I felt, to blur it and take the edge off it, to indulge in it and then leave it behind.
“It reflects the constant effort to balance feeling too much and feeling nothing, the desperate search for equilibrium that only ever ends in chaos”, adds Jamieson.
Produced by Steph Marziano (Ex:Re, Hayley Williams, Denai Moore, Lazy Day), the forthcoming EP cements Jamieson’s transition from the folk of her early days to the burgeoning, stirring electronica which she now exudes. A brave switch in direction that proves Jamieson has returned to us, sure of who she is and what she wants to say.
