Sofi Gev’s “Together, Never Break”

In the wise words of Rick Rubin, "The creative act is a way of being". We must accept it as it is, right?

Sofi Gev, the brainchild of American singer-songwriter and indie pop artist Hannah Lovelady, draws inspiration from a diverse range of musicians like Birdy, Aurora, Maggie Rogers, Coeur De Pirate, Regina Spektor, Shara Nova, and Natasha Khan. Lovelady’s music weaves introspective, whimsical lyrics and ethereal vocals over a captivating fusion of indie pop, electronica, and indie folk. Influenced by her father serenading her with Joni Mitchell tunes in her childhood, Sofi Gev‘s musical journey began with impromptu road trip songs with her sister and evolved through piano and French horn lessons. Her melodies, shaped by singing recipes with her father’s acoustic guitar accompaniment, reflect an intimate yet universally relatable exploration of life’s challenges.

As a musician and a composer, Sofi‘s latest single “Together, Never Break” hits me in a whole new level. Crafting music transcends the passive anticipation of inspiration; it demands delving into the tempest within, seeking a solitary vessel of significance amidst the turmoil. The creative process involves navigating the scalding waters of one’s own mistakes, traumas, limitations, and moral lapses, an arduous yet necessary endeavor. The alternative is a landscape of disorder and debris devoid of beauty or purpose. The composition under scrutiny fearlessly delves into these existential themes, offering a poignant exploration of the tumultuous journey to find meaning amid the wreckage of the past.
