Sophia Somajo1Valiantly ravishing and talented Swedish pop princess, Sophia Somajo, drops ‘‘Sapphire’’, out April 21st on Razzia Records as part of ‘The Blue Chapter’ double single package.

The electricfying, industrial-tinged pop gem is described by the Swedish sensation like so…”“It’s about chasing after something that you know you cannot get. About building someone up to be something they aren’t. I have been digging after this jewel for so many years. My fingers are bleeding and my heart is tired. With this song I am letting him know that I am letting him go.””

Previous stunner ‘Klein Blue’’ and new track ‘‘Sapphire’’, will feature on her forthcoming ‘Freudian Slip EP Vol. 1’ which will be released later this year.

Sophia adds: “I’m so not interested in the craft of anything,” she says with a knowing smile. “I’m interested in breaking the rules. Trial and error and then learning from the errors. You imitate your heroes and then by accident you become yourself. I feel like it’s dangerous to learn how to do something.””Sophia SomajoThe fiercely independent artist points out: ““I’m very low maintenance as an artist –I do my own videos, my own press shots in my kitchen with my boyfriend,” she laughs. “Most people would say you can’t be an artist if you don’t want to be the centre of attention, but I make songs and that comes very naturally to me.” Sometimes it’s simultaneously as complex and straightforward as that.”
