SOMA – SINGLE REVIEW

Soma – White Noise 
Soma - White Noise


Release Date: 27th September 2016

Soma might be based in Stockholm but her roots are long and far reaching. Musically, however, Soma’s new single ‘White Noise’ starts off a little like a Celine Dion uber-ballad before being saved by the kind of sparse beats that Portishead made their name with. Then, about 90 seconds in, Soma kicks in to full Ellie Goulding pop princess mode as those beats kick up a notch and the electro murmurings swirl in the early evening light. As a song, it doesn’t quite hit the heights that you might hope for but as a piece of song-writing it’s a masterclass in reserved poise and subtlety. Whether you like that or not is up to you.
