Sody (Sophie Dyson) is an emerging British singer-songwriter. Not too long ago, she released a music video for her new tongue-in-cheek single, titled, “Star Potential.”
Sody “Star Potential” music video
“I wrote this song when I felt like I wasn’t good enough for this industry. People were telling me I had all this potential to be something and ‘star quality’ yet nothing was moving in their eyes and opportunities weren’t being given to me. That’s when I made the decision to leave my label and become an independent artist again. To create my own destiny. Actions speak louder than words and I can’t pay my rent with exposure. I hope anyone that has a talent in something knows their worth!” – Sody explained
‘Star Potential’ is a therapeutic pop song, a confidence booster that people can sing out loud to find strength. The track also finds Sody flexing her songwriting muscle to the highest standard. The video, on the other hand, asks questions about the expectations of young artists in the music industry. In what promises to be a busy year of new music releases, fans can expect plenty more brilliance from Sody who is just getting started.
‘Star Potential’ follows mildly on the heels of Sody’s appearance on Dylan‘s latest single, “Every Heart But Mine,” alongside the UK’s Eurovision choice, Mae Muller, and highly tipped artists—Beren Olivia, Cat Burns, and Rachel Chinouriri.
“My words mean nothing until I’m successful.”
Sody’s approach to raw songwriting has proven to be the winning blueprint throughout her career. Only two years after her debut song, she released her demo, “Whole,” which sat on Spotify’s Most Beautiful Songs in the World playlist for three consecutive years. Sody then released two Eps, I’m Sorry, I’m Not Sorry (2019), followed by real growth takes time (2020), over which her audience grew exponentially. The EP releases and the tracks that followed produced a slew of popular singles that captured the hearts of a growing global audience.
Sody – “B*tch (I Said It)” music video
“After years of releasing music about my sadness, ‘B*tch (i said it)’ takes me into this new, angrier phase. I do see the good in people a lot but there are only so many times you can put up with someone treating you badly. This song has given me new confidence and has enabled me to channel my emotions into a sort of cheeky rage rather than crying into my pillow energy. It’s the realization that you’re actually better off without them and now you can scream it from the rooftops!” – Sody explained
In 2019, Sody released the mid-tempo track, ‘butterfly,’ and emotively pensive, ‘is your bedroom ceiling bored?’ (2020) – a collaboration with Cavetown, and the brutally honest, ‘Bitch (I Said It)‘ (2021). The tracks were as versatile as they were strong. It was in moments like this that Sody won over tastemakers, media outlets, and fans alike.
