SOFY DELIVERS WITH NEW SINGLE 'ASHLEY COLE TYPE BEAT' AND ANNOUNCES TOUR

NEWS

SOFY continues to justify why she is one of the most exciting names in indie pop at the moment with new single 'Ashley Cole Type Beat'. She not only delivers the distinctive animacy of a SOFY release but comes with the additional excitement of a wider project announcement, 'Chaos & Commotion', arriving this Oct 27th, and a UK headline tour commencing on the 28th November.

 

Spearheading the announcement, single 'Ashley Cole Type Beat' delivers the attitude of Kate Nash with the zest of a Beck track. Symbolic of SOFY’s innate ability to synergise the old with the new, the track is a single-handed serving of forward thinking nostalgia, that sets a very promising precedence for the mixtape to follow. Capturing this, the official music video offers a space for this attitude to come alive, as SOFY gets a chance to turn, what looks like your parents kitchen, into complete chaos and commotion.


Speaking on the track, SOFY explains;


“'Ashley Cole Type Beat' is one of the most playful tracks on the mixtape, it’s about hedonism, giving in to temptation and basically being a bit of a dickhead but being totally unapologetic about it - ‘Coz I’m a reckless driver, got no self control, when you’re a semi - pro liar, life’s an open goal ’. I love writing songs like this, where you can just totally lean into a character or an aspect of personality that you wouldn’t usually tap into in everyday life (coz you’d have no friends) - it’s like letting the devil on your shoulder write a song for you. It’s such a fun song, and I feel like the production really leans into that as well, it’s got that in - your - face almost playground - esque taunting feeling to it that matches the lyrics really well."

The announcement arrives into out-stretched fingers and welcoming arms as SOFY’s army of rats continues to grow into cult-like status, and the buzz around her name is starting to turn into a national sonic stir. The 'Chaos & Commotion' mixtape will be a nod to her previous two EP’s 'Bored In Colour (Pt.1)' and 'Bored In Colour (Pt.2)', but will stand as a 9-track opus demonstrating the incredible artistic evolution of SOFY and the creative confidence instilled by the rewards she has reaped from earlier releases.


Incredibly, the mixtape will be SOFY’s first ever masterpiece pressed to vinyl. Just 4-weeks later, SOFY will be embarking on her first ever UK headline tour to share the excitement of its release with her ever-growing fanbase, with stops in Glasgow, Leeds, Nottingham, Bristol, Manchester, and of course her hometown of Leicester. Not forgetting London, of course, SOFY will be hosting an intimate 3-night residency at The Grace, ahead of some very exciting live plans for London in 2024.


Having swiftly captivated the British pop music and cultural landscape with her cleverly crafted, relatable lyrics and playful approach, SOFY has amassed millions of streams, won the adorations of press across the globe and solidified her status as a rising star to keep a close eye on in 2023 and beyond.
