UK based future pop super stars, Sophie and the Giants have returned with their impassioned new single ‘Don’t Ask Me To Change’, out now on Republic Records.
The song is an atmospheric, hook-laden synth anthem. Sophie’s crystalline vocal soars over a bedrock of tom-tom drums, augmented backing vocals and a driving bassline to create a defiant anthem of personal autonomy.
“I wrote this song at a time when I was at a crossroads and examining my relationships with people” Sophie explains. “Every time I discovered something new about myself, I’d feel the compulsion to repress it slightly and minimise my true self to avoid being judged or losing people. I wrote ‘Don’t Ask Me To Change’ when I finally decided “fuck that”, because if they really loved me I wouldn’t have to make those compromises.”
