Today SOPHIE releases "Ponyboy," a surprising new song that ruptures the calm of "It's Okay To Cry" with something more vigorous and contorted. The accompanying self-directed video features choreography by acclaimed performance duo FlucT, who appear alongside SOPHIE in a dramatized ménage à trois, a mutating power dynamic expressed through dance. "Ponyboy" is available to purchase and stream via Apple Music and Spotify and the video is available to watch and share HERE.
The "Ponyboy" clip showcases performance and staging elements of SOPHIE's live show, recently debuted at Red Bull Music Academy Festival Los Angeles, which OUT magazine described as "legendary." Fans can expect details for a headlining New York City show shortly.
"Ponyboy" follows the release of "It's Okay To Cry," which fleshed out unseen sides of Sophie, touched on in previous releases and diverse production works, taking new and unexpected forms. Sophie appeared for the first time in the self-directed clip, revealing deeper dimensions of an ever-evolving artist who continues to explore, distort, and evolve pop culture from inside and out.
