Just as September’s autumn evenings draw the Nordics night curtains down, it also calls to be surrounded by lit candles and an amber glass of whiskey while listening to Sofia Aarvik‘s new single Safe. The song’s room-filling sonics, with immersive Hi-fi quality production, vibrate peace and serenity throughout.
Sofia has the voice of a Nordic soul angel.
With glistering clarity, velvety depth and without unnecessary ad-libs or vocal runs to distract from the gorgeousness of the song, Safe is captivating and a powerful experience to listen to. Moreover, it seems to match the soft and timeless soundscape perfectly. She oozes class effortlessly – a quality every singer strives to achieve.
However, it’s not ‘only’ Sofia’s voice that caresses you in this new single. The lyrics stand out too. They are warming, endearing and heartfelt, describing the feeling of finding a safe haven in someone. “My soul feels safe with him“, goes the prominent phrase of the chorus, and it is hard not to be moved. Safe sounds like meeting someone that finally leads you home, and it’s presented in such a present and down-to-earth way that it could have been my words, or yours.
Winter is coming, and Sofia Aarvik takes her rightful seat beside Norway’s soul queens.
