Brazilian-bred, Los Angeles-based alternative rock trio SOFIA has released their debut single “Coconut,” a song about acceptance and finding happiness with the little things in a relationship and the aspects of your partner that are unique to them. CLICK HERE to listen. A steady drumbeat drips between echoes of clean guitar, spacey soloing, and ethereal vocals on “Coconut,” the introductory track off the band’s debut independent EP Stories For The Sleepless, due out June 24th.
SOFIA has also issued the official video for “Coconut,” the first in a 6-part series of short films that will visually accompany the songs on the upcoming EP. The video for “Coconut,” filmed in Los Angeles and directed by the band’s vocalist/bassist Leonardo Bomeny with his production company Salt Karamel, introduces viewers to B and Tala, the two main characters in the continuous visual narrative that will run throughout the story of the album. CLICK HERE to watch the video, which first premiered with MXDWN.
“We’re very excited to finally share these stories and we could not have picked a better song that encapsulates the themes of the album than ‘Coconut,'” shares the band. “Our hope is that the listeners can relate to what we say and let us be the soundtrack to their own stories.”
In more exciting news, SOFIA has announced they’ll make their live debut on Thursday, March 5th at The Sayers Club in Hollywood, CA. CLICK HERE for ticketing info.
