A new and exciting artist has landed on our radar and has just released new single ‘Sober’, the song is a soft and sweet alternative pop track written and released by Siobhán Winifred. She previously received airplay on BBC Radio 1 and 6 Music and landed in many a chart. Putting those impressive facts aside, she’s a singer songwriter, a poet in her own right, bringing us a reflective sound that is soft and soothing and rather refreshing. ‘Sober’ shines a light on her grand vocals and talks about conflicting emotions.
This warm and shimmering alt-pop sound is one we would never shy away from, and Siobhán combines it with strong lyricism. About the story behind the song, she says: “It’s about the constant push and pull, where every word and action can have a double meaning. Lyrically the song is about how, when you’re feeling lost, you attach your worth to their interest in you and do whatever you cannot to lose it. Sometimes despite all the warning signs that are there, it’s hard to resist the sense of self-protection and direction that comes from placing your sense of self in someone else’s interest in you: you know you need to let go but just don’t have the strength to.”
