Sophie Powers shares music video for ‘Break up on the Weekend’

Hot on the heels of her recent debut EP Red In Revenge, 17-year-old hyper-punk pop artist Sophie Powers has shared the official music video for new single “Break Up On The Weekend.”

Since her debut early last year, Sophie has been a hands-on artist, co-directing and styling each of her music videos, and “Break Up On The Weekend” was no exception. “The video shoot was super fun since I designed the outfits and was able to help style all of the cast members. Most of the cast members were high school kids who were actually my friends,” Sophie shares. “I love designing all my own music video outfits, but it’s even more fun doing other people’s hair. Everyone was super open to my stylistic ideas and Parker Harwood helped me a lot with styling this one. Everyone was great and it was definitely one of the funniest music videos I’ve done.”

“Break Up On The Weekend” was originally found on Sophie’s new debut EP, Red In Revenge. The seven-song collection features stellar collaborations including “1 Thing” with Kellin Quinn, which continued Sophie’s ongoing conversation about youth mental health; the rock anthem “Greed,” featuring up-and-coming alternative singer/rapper DE’WAYNE; and “Clearview” which features fellow touring NOAHFINNCE. His recent single “U Love It” featuring rapper $atori Zoom slashed his unique hyper-punk genre. In addition to the fan favorite “Life Goes On!!”, Sophie released two new tracks, “See Me!!” and focus on single “Break Up On The Weekend”.

“The title of the song sums up my experience when ending a boring relationship,” Sophie shares of her new single. “In the song, I explain that they were a good person, but they never wanted to do anything other than the two of us. I’m a very outgoing person and even though they say ‘opposites attract “, being in a relationship with someone more introverted than I was was super hard. It’s a very real thing to feel stuck and muster the courage to move on / someone who drags you down. Break Up On The Weekend has a deep story behind its simple title and relatability, and for that reason I’m proud of myself for writing it.”

At just 17, Sophie Powers is a bold voice beyond her years. She understands the unique pressures of modern youth and uses her experience to write unfiltered, soulless anthems about the ups and downs of being yourself. One minute she’s confident and cool, with the sneering attitude of a punk rock singer, and the next she’s vulnerable and raw, channeling the loneliness of contemporary life into a soulful ballad. Combining the crisp sound of punk with today’s hip-hop and pop, Powers is the sound of the future.

With over 2.5 million streams since her “Loney Army” debut in 2021, Sophie has found her music on popular editorial playlists such as SALT, the cover of New Punk Tracks, Punks Not Dead, It’s a Bop, Rock Favorites, Punk Unleashed and many more. Her recent collaboration with Kellin Quinn on “1 Thing” continued Sophie’s ongoing conversation about youth mental health, while her recent track “Life Goes On!!” reminds his peers of the importance of coming out of grief.

Sophie also recently teamed up with rising alternative singer/rapper DE’WAYNE on the single “Greed”, a rock anthem focused on the destructive results that come from one of the deadliest sins of all. Most recently, Sophie collaborated with online sensation NOAHFINNCE on the fast-paced “Clearview.” Quickly making a name for herself, Sophie received accolades from The FADER, American Songwriter, Alternative Press, The Noise, Exclaim and CelebMix for her unfiltered, uncompromising voice.
