For as long as she can remember, Sody has always been a songwriter seeking inspiration practically everywhere she goes. At just 20 years old, this rising British artist gains millions of streams with every immaculate release, but we can’t say we’re surprised. With a delightful personality and charming songwriting, Sody is pleased to present her introspective new single, “butterfly.”
On “butterfly,” Sody reflected,
“One day I went for a walk in the sticks, sat in a field, read a book, and saw a little white butterfly. I wondered where it had been and the journey it had been on. I felt alone at times during those months and had a lot of time to think about my life, my experiences, and my own actions.”
Like most of us, Sody has been spending more time alone since the start of the current global pandemic–but she’s managed to channel this into the pleasant narrative of “butterfly.” Just as a butterfly undergoes metamorphosis, Sody acknowledges that human beings do exactly the same. With pulsating beats layered atop Sody’s uplifting vocals, “butterfly” instills a sense of hope and confidence within all of us.
“I took great comfort in that butterfly and its metamorphosis into a beautiful creature. I related my own life to that and wrote the song over Zoom.”
