Alt-pop songsmiths, Sophie and the Giants are back with the brand new single ‘Break the Silence’. The track comes just ahead the band’s debut performance at next weekend’s Reading Festival.

‘Break The Silence’ finds the band in anthemic mode, with a simple piano riff during the verse exploding into a propulsive drum-and-synth driven epic for the chorus, with Sophie’s emotive vocals shining through at the heart of the song.

Lyrically the track is a call to arms, as Sophie explains: 

“Break the silence is about using your voice as your most powerful tool, even if it’s scary. When you’re someone who’s never felt like you’ve had a voice, listen and empower yourself to let go of that fear. It could make the biggest difference and it might help us all learn to be honest without fearing rejection or judgment. It’s about shouting out and making yourself heard.”
