Sheffield, UK alt-pop band Sophie and the Giants recently shared a powerful song called “If I Don’t Break Your Heart I’ll Break Mine”. The track was accompanied by a live-performance visual which highlights its heart-gripping lyrics. It tells a story of painful self-discovery in the hope of showing others the way.
“‘If I Don’t Break Your Heart I’ll Break Mine’ is about knowing when you need to be by yourself,” Sophie explains. “I wrote it when I was 19 and overwhelmed with anxiety and low self-esteem. I was still relying on others to make me happy and I had no idea who I wanted to be. The only way I could find out was if I took myself away from others to get to know myself better. So I did that, hoping the people who loved me would understand. It’s crazy to finally release it and be able to see where it’s taken me.”
