Indie-folk artist Maija Sofia has released her brand new single, the mournful ‘Persephone’.
Described by Maija Sofia as an “ode to the many talented women throughout history who have been oppressed and overshadowed at the hands of an abuse”, ‘Persephone’ is a gently set song that focuses on the lyrics, with each word delivered by Sofia’s soft-spoken vocal having its own equal importance.
Building and falling, the subtle indie-folk sound of Maija Sofia’s latest single is captivating in the inherent despair the music mirrors from the lyrics. Essential listening.
