Her folky indie pop sound and distinctive charismatic charm have made Sophia Alexa something of a breakout success since her emergence back in 2021, with the tenderness and heart of her sound resonating with thousands of listeners and propelling her into the conversation for the most exciting rising artists that are around today.

The latest release from the singer-songwriter is ‘Hall Pass’, a typically thoughtful and quietly powerful release that highlights both alluring vocals of the artist and her nuanced, immersive songwriting. Narratively, the track explores the concept of self-sabotage, and the moments you have in life where everything is going perfectly and you’re waiting for cracks to emerge in the foundations and for everything to fall apart. The resonating nature of the lyrics and the artist’s endearing and vulnerable approach to her writing makes for a listening experience that feels cathartic and easy to lose yourself within, introspective and personal but with a universal feel that a lot of us will be able to relate to and remember being in similar situations. ‘Hall Pass’ continues to establish Sophia Alexa as a special prospect in modern music, echoing the talent and allure that has radiated from her previous work.

On the story behind the creation of “Hall Pass” Sophia shares; “I wrote hall pass because I wanted to capture the feeling of self-sabotage. I’ve always had this fear that when something is going too well I’m just waiting for it to fall apart. It’s almost a form of protection and being okay with someone leaving before you get hurt, which is why I loved the title hall pass, it’s giving someone an out.”
