SOPHIA DANAI – SINGLE REVIEW

Sophia Danai – Bitter ft. Brevner 
Sophie Danai - Bitter


Release Date: Out Now

Sophia Dinai’s press release openly states that this track is about purging all those negative emotions that come at the end of a relationship that has headed down a toxic pathway. ‘Bitter’ has a mellow guitar melody that broods and twists like the last drop of whisky dripping from the bottle at the end of a long session. Danai’s voice has pop and soul in equal measure and reminds me of the likes of All Saints and Sugababes in their more sultry prime. MC Brevner adds some edge to this classy piece of passive aggressive break up pop but I was already sold by the repeated line of “It’s so bitter going down” sung through clenched teeth and a strong lip curl. There aren’t many pop songs with this much anger and bile in them which makes it stick out in the melee of wannabes but I hope for Danai’s sake that she’s moved on now. Nobody needs that negative energy handing around them long term.
