UK's future pop super-stars, Sophie and the Giants have returned with their impassioned new single 'Right Now' via Republic Records.
'Right Now' is a huge slice of empowering electro-pop, buoyed by Sophie’s rapturous vocals and catchy synth riffs. The song is a defiant ode to the good times we all miss and know will come again, an unbridled expression of joy and freedom designed to bring some joy into people’s lives.
“In a time where we feel lost and stuck in an endless cycle, we want to feel those real-life highs again and we want it now more than ever. ’Right Now’ is a song about the frustration we’re all feeling, about how we want to be let loose upon the world again. We hope wherever people are this will give them the feeling, if only for a moment, that anything is possible again”
The track was written by Sophie and Mike Kintish, who together also collaborated with Tino Schmidt, aka Purple Disco Machine, to create the song 'Hypnotized', now certified as one of the biggest pan-European hits of 2020. The single was also produced by up-and-coming production duo Soda State.
For Sophie, the experience of becoming a bona fide pop star inEurope while being in the middle of a lockdown was a surreal one. One minute she’s in her flat in Sheffield, the next she’s landing in Italy to perform for Power Hits Estate 2020 in an empty Coliseum.
From their adoptive hometown of Sheffield, the band have been refining their intense, life-affirming sound which has already won fans at Radio with support from the likes of BBC Introducing and Radio 1. Sophie and the Giants were invited to play Radio 1's Big Weekend in 2019, as well as delivering sets at Glastonbury and Reading festival and are itching to return to the live arena this year.
