EP review: Sophie Powers – Red In Revenge
17-year-old Sophie Powers gets gutsy about girlhood empowerment on debut EP, Red In Revenge.
“The song title U Love It alludes to the feminine power that the song itself carries,” she explains. “My intentions while writing this song were to prove that you can feel pretty and desirable while feeling dominant and powerful. Even with all of the amazing change happening right now, it still feels like there's a lot of stigma surrounding the idea that to feel 'feminine' you cannot be strong and independent-minded.
“In the song, both lyrically and performance-wise, I try to embody Megan Fox’s character and persona in Jennifer’s Body: a girl-eater who is confident and beautiful. Not saying I'm confident 24/7, but when I do feel good or want to feel better about myself, this song would be the first one I would play. It's for the girls, gays, non-binary folk, and anyone and everyone in between who needs to be reminded of their power, and who they are!”
U Love It is taken from Sophie's upcoming debut EP, Red In Revenge. Check it out below:
