“Can’t Say Yes” HERE (+ free to share on soundcloud HERE)
Debut EP The Shmixtape to be released 9/22
(available for review on request)
Los Angeles’ Sophie and The Bom Boms revealed the new track “Can’t Say Yes” offtheir upcoming The Shmixtape EP with Yahoo! HERE calling it “… indeed the songwriter knows a thing about creating tunes that resonate with girls.” Earlier, NYLON premiered “Pray” HERE. You can see the video for “Pray,” which was shot in Sophie’s LA neighborhood HERE. NYLON described Sophie and The Bom Boms’ “Pray”: “Just when you thought things couldn’t get any catchier than Sara Bareilles, Katy Perry, or even Britney Spears (yeah, we went there…), Sophie Stern comes along.”
“Can’t Say Yes,“ “Pray,“ and “Woman” are all taken from The Shmixtape EP that will be released on 9/22.
“I wrote these songs as if I was talking with my best girlfriends,” says Sophie Stern.
Her identity prior to this evocative new pop incarnation was as sought-after songwriter, earning her bread writing hits for A-listers like Britney Spears, British pop star Conor Maynard, and The Ready Set, among others. But make no mistake – this ain’t no wistful follow-your-dream template that Sophie is cooking up now.
What makes the 4 song offering so upbeat and engaging—besides the toppling beats bracing Stern’s sultry swagger—are the songs, themselves; soulfully primed missives like “Woman”—percolating drums and piano skating over Sophie’s empowering vocals.
“The Bom Boms are my backing band led by producer/multi-instrumentalist David Elevator,” Sophie explains. “He is my writing partner and produces all my songs. It’s always a surprise to me which Bom Boms are going to be at shows or rehearsals. Sometimes it’s a big band, sometimes it’s just him.”
“Sophie Stern hit us like a brick with her catchy, infectious pop jam “Pray.” – Refinery 29
