One can never know what’s coming in life, or in this case music. You just never know what direction an artist is going to take when you see just a name on a page. At least that’s how I love to walk into situations like this. Knowing just a name, SØF was a mystery to me. Was this a band, a rap duo, a country artist? In the end SØF was none of those but instead a solo artist formerly known as Sofia Nicole with a sweet voice anyone would be lucky to have serenade them.
With the current scene, I thought once I saw SØF she’d be placed in the same scene as say Halsey, but instead she had a more Carole King, classic tone to her voice. At least that comes across with her debut single, “Ghosts.” Classic with a great incorporation of modern elements tossed in with the musical arrangements that remind me of structures heard in AC pop songs from the late ’90s and early ’00s.
A great sound from this New Jersey girl, SØF comes across like a true form singer-songwriter but delivers a great deal of pop in her elevated style. An artist worth checking out, SØF’s “Ghosts” will be available now.
