Sofie is back with her sophomore project, an EP consisting of live R&B and Neo-soul instrumentation which was released earlier today (Friday 24th May) on all available streaming platforms. Sophie just a few weeks ago gave us “Rise” which is the first single off the project.
Speaking to Sofie about the project, she declared; “Light Waves will take you on a journey on which you will feel a plethora of emotions. From the upbeat lively songs like ‘Broken World’ and ‘You’ to the more laid back, chilled out songs like ‘Maybe’ and ‘Rise.’ Get ready to be immersed in the waves.”
