Sofi de la Torre - Sit Down

Spanish alt-pop artist Sofi de la Torre, who uses the hashtag #PopDoneRight to describe her sound, has today unveiled her feisty new single entitled "Sit Down" along with an accompanying music video directed by Philipp Groth. Featuring tropical-tinged beats juxtaposed with brazen lyrics and warped vocals, "Sit Down" is unlike anything Sofi has released before.

The new single also serves as the first piece of original music Sofi has share since her critically acclaimed Mess EP was released last year and featured tracks such as "19 in Mexico" and "London x Paris" - which saw a spin from Jaden Smith on his Beats 1 show. Globe-trotting between the Canary Islands, London, LA and Helsinki, the Berlin-based artist's style touches on a range of influences, with electronic beats and a subtle Scandi-pop inclination inspired by her ongoing collaboration with Finnish producer Jonas Karlsson.

With celebrity fans including Grimes and Paramore’s lead singer Hayley Williams, and support from publications including The Sunday Times and Nylon, Sofi de la Torre's "Sit Down" showcases a commendable ability and commitment to developing her sound. Despite being approached by a number of major labels over the past few months, it’s clear that her priorities lie just one way: staying true to her ‘pop done right’ philosophy, and to herself.

Speaking on the track, Sofi says:

"This song is so liberating... not just for me - for anyone out there who feels they have something to say about any situation that bothers them. We all know a person who needs to sit the fuck down. The world is full of petty people. And this song is their anthem."

Listen and watch the video for "Sit Down" below.

"Sit Down" will be released on June 10th. Pre-order on iTunes.

Premiere via Fuse.
