Sophia Bel releases the new explosive post-pop-punk anthem I Don’t Need My Space

Sophia Bel is back with the single I Don’t Need My Space, a bold post-pop-punk anthem on which she continues her quest for self-assertion. This new track follows the success of her Princess of the Dead, Vol. II EP, released last November via Bonsound. With it, Bel was able to explore an even wider range of styles and genres through a nostalgic lens. The EP reached the second position on the earshot! chart, which lists the most played albums on college radios in Canada.

The song is accompanied by an explosive and colourful music video that Sophia Bel imagined. Inspired by the pop-punk scene of the early 2000s, the audience is transported to the heart of the artistic vision of the Montreal-based singer and producer, who significantly contributed to the styling, art direction, set design and conceptualization. The result is extravagant, entertaining and bizarre all at once, while also permitting a better understanding of Sophia's unique universe. For Léa Dumoulin, who co-directed the music video with Bel, the aesthetics of the video represent a perfect opportunity to revive the codes of the music videos that marked our teenage years with fish-eye, overexposure and candy pink.

With I Don't Need My Space, Sophia Bel doubles down on externalizing built up angst and frustration from the past. This time around, the artist introduces a hyperpop hit voice, and even a cute dolphin-like squeak, as she makes a case for the importance of expressing her needs and limitations. Playing it cool never got anyone anywhere when it comes to vulnerability and connection, she explains of the theme to her single, so you might as well turn the heat way up and weed out the frozen fuckers in the process. A relevant and catchy song comes from it and sets the table for the upcoming tracks that will be featured on her debut album, which is currently being recorded.

Sophia Bel will be performing a few shows across Quebec this summer, some of them double features. See the full list below and head on over here for more details.
