Siobhán Winifred - Sober

Siobhán Winifred - Sober

Fast rising alt-pop artist Siobhán Winifred makes her very welcomed return today with her stunning new single, "Sober". Beautifully pieced together across a bubbling effervescent backdrop, the track quickly rises to fruition from its softly hushed intro in to its towering pop sensibilities. A true force to be reckoned with. Speaking about "Sober", Siobhán gives this insight, "I wrote Sober about the conflicting emotions you experience when your relationship with someone is based on no attachment and no expectations. It's about the constant push and pull, where every word and action can have a double meaning. Lyrically the song is about how, when you're feeling lost, you attach your worth to their interest in you and do whatever you cannot to lose it. Sometimes despite all the warning signs that are there, it's hard to resist the sense of self-protection and direction that comes from placing your sense of self in someone else's interest in you: you know you need to let go but just don't have the strength to. Ultimately, I like to think Sober is a very relatable song that captures the emotional conflict we experience when we find ourselves in a relationship with an inevitable expiration date". 

The track comes after her recent announcement becoming longlisted for this year's Glastonbury Emerging Talent Competition 2023. The infamous contest sees 90 new and emerging artists compete for a slot on one of the main stages at this year's event, and will also be awarded a £5,000 Talent Development prize from PRS Foundation, with two runners-up also awarded a £2,500 PRS Foundation Talent Development prize.
