Don't you want me
After many years of searching for the right sound Sophia Tako has finally found a home among artists FKA Twigs, Solange and Grimes, strong women who dare to tell their stories in their own unique way. Sophia's music is a true reflection of her inner emotional world, and her lyrics are questions, observations and thoughts that she has encountered so far in life and now she wants to share them with the world.
Sophia's journey started back when she at five years old decided to become an artist, and since then she has worked hard with her sight clearly set on performing her own music to make people feel and experience all the different sides of life. Her journey has taken her through both Swedish Idol and X-Factor but she knew instantly that that type of marketing was not for her. For Sophia music is about being genuin and to dare to be who you want to be, and this is what she wants to convey to the world; everyone can choose to be exactly the one they want and as long as that is the best version of themselves no one can say anything about it.
She has previously been part of a funky pop/rock band that made it to the finals of the competition "Musik Direkt" and received much attention from the media, but as usual, and as a blessing in disguise the band grew apart and Sophia finally had to try to find the sound she really wanted to be associated with and it led her to find artists like FKA Twigs, Grimes, Princess Nokia & Tkay Maidza. She found her place among female underground artists.
On her new Ep RIDE Sophia has dived deep within herself and looked closely at all aspects of her life; love, sexuality and growing up and realizing that she no longer is a child but a woman and how to embrace what that means. In the song 'Good Girl', she sings about how tired she is of being, as the title implies a "good girl", just to gain other people's approval and she announces that she finally has had enough:
"God knows I've tried to be a good girl all life, and God knows I'm tired, I am tired of hiding my true desires. I am just a girl. "
Sophia is ready to make her voice heard, it is time to challenge the limits, create conversations and get people to question how a society today really should look like!
