Sophia Amato Returns With New Song “ICONS”
London-based singer-songwriter Sophia Amato returned with a new song “ICONS” from a brief hiatus on September 22, 2023.
The song is her first music in two years since the 2021 EP “Glorious Mess”.
The track is inspired by New York. It was written by Sophia Amato, Karl Zine, and Raphaella Mazaheri-Asadi. Produced by Karl Zine.
The accompanying music video was directed by Sophia Amato and Gary Carr.
Sophia Amato said of the song, “Inspired by the presence of New York City's towering buildings, I began exploring the idea that 'ICONS ARE ALWAYS LONELY,' a lyric that became the starting point for the song. I wanted to bring the chaos and density of the city into the layers of the song through elements like jazz horns, synths, and vocal stacks. Lyrical verses that resemble snippets of overheard conversations, along with anthemic horns and energetic drums, ICONS serves as an anthem for self-empowerment, a sense of arrival, and my personal soundtrack to the city.”
