Canadian artist Sophia Bel blurs the line between reality and fantasy in their new single “Time” – an ethereally trip hop piece that is anchored by a lo-fi hip-hop rhythm and embellished with haunting atmosphere. With nostalgic undertones, “Time” exhibits a warm meditative vibe where Sophia’s voice lures you to the corners of your imagination and past. Stream below:

“‘Time’ really set the tone for the EP. It felt like the beginning of a fantasy that later transcended into the 3 other songs of this record. The mood is blue, with visions of a windy coast in a sunny paradise. The energy is dreamy and nostalgic. What inspired the lyrics was my difficulty to let my guard down. I was listening to a lot of trip-hop at the time and the artist that rubbed of on me the most in this one is Moby.” shared Sophia.

“Time” is from Sophia’s upcoming debut EP Princess of the Dead, which the gal will be sharing more details further down the road so stay tuned.
