WE REVIEW THE NEW SINGLE FROM SOPHIE FERIANI – GUILTY
London based singer-songwriter Sophie Feriani disrupts the pop scene with her debut single Guilty. Though not yet familiar to many, Feriani is set to become a household name with a multitude of achievements already under her belt.
Guilty is a cathartic RnB track rooted in youthful hardships recognisable for most. Backstabbing, deceit, and platonic heartbreak all contributed to the substance of this song, and Feriani’s skilful writing sends her message clear as day.
Accompanying punchy lyrics is a body of rich instrumentation backed by a soulfully unbreaking groove that breathes with the music. Each verse flows effortlessly into the melodic chorus dusted with smooth synth lines. Subtle but impactful electro beats accentuate the polished structure, while ethereal harmonies soften the electronic pinch. The production is so precise with not one part left unspoken for.
The song reaches its anthemic pinnacle in the final chorus of heightened instrumentals and sense-bending backing vocals. Her adlibs resonate like an angelic chorus shimmering down from above. It’s intense, but still that incessant rhythm remains, full of passion.
Guilty channels Feriani’s pain but with a sense of poise and maturity beyond her years. Her ability to craft such a song so early on in her career is wildly impressive. She’s certainly one to watch.
