Six years ago we introduced British, London based-singer songwriter Sophie Jamieson with the tracks “Stain” and “Other”. Now she has announced the release of a new EP called Release which will be out on December 1st. Focusing on a depressive period of intense loneliness, it is produced by Steph Marziano (Hayley Williams, Ex: Re, Denai Moore, Lazy Day). It follows hot on the heels of EP ‘Hammer’, which arrived in February, and ‘Climb’, a song she co-wrote alongside Charlie Cunningham.
“Release was written during one of the loneliest periods of my life. Becoming disconnected from those close to me, I searched for connection blindly, drinking past blackout and getting myself into trouble. The next day I would find a way to punish myself. It was a vicious circle”, Jamieson explains.
The first excerpt is called “Forward“. She explains: ” “Forward’ is about trying to find some control amid chaos. My instinct for years had been to deny that a period of time had happened, to empty myself of its trace – but at this point I began to understand that I could accept it, that it is part of who I am and that I do not have to destroy the evidence of my past in order to move forward”.
