It feels like just yesterday we covered SOFY’s delectable debut single, so it’s truly incredible to see how much she’s grown as of late. The Leicester-raised songstress may draw you in with her down-to-Earth lyricism, but it’s her innate ability to craft mellow indie pop bangers that’ll keep you absolutely hooked. As stunning as ever before, SOFY is pleased to present her vibrant new single, “Egomaniac.”
Influenced by a 2006 cult classic’s basketball star protagonist, “Egomaniac” explores the downfall of a self-centered jerk. With buoyant instrumentals layered atop cheeky choruses, “Egomaniac” reminds us of just how clever SOFY can be. For anyone who’s been ignoring the obvious red flags, SOFY urges you to proceed with caution.
On “Egomaniac,” SOFY offered,
“‘Egomaniac’ is a breakup revenge anthem, inspired by the cult 00s film ‘John Tucker Must Die’ (if John Tucker was a 5’10” softboi from Hackney). Written from the perspective of breaking up with a narcissist, the song is about looking back and reflecting on a toxic relationship after it’s over, and seeing all the red flags that were missed at the time (‘say love is blind til it’s over, you’ll never see yourself the way that I can see ya’). It’s been one of my favorite songs to play on the festival circuit this summer so I’m really excited for it to finally be yours!!”
