“Sophie Powers has proven impossible to ignore with her razor-sharp brand of punk-edged alternative pop” – CLOUT
“the pair of musicians bounce off of each other seamlessly.” – The FADER
Proving to be a force rising through the alternative scene, teen rocker Sophie Powers has had the industry buzzing since her spring debut. Today, Sophie drops her latest offering ‘Clearview’ with online sensation NOAHFINNCE, following the announcement that she will be joining the pop-punk artist on his Anatomy of a Rat tour across the UK in January. The release is accompanied by a cinematic, high speed music video.
“I wanted the lyrics of this song to visually embody the feeling of leaving a bad situation,” Sophie explains on the new release. “I imagined a high speed car chase, where I’m being chased by someone toxic, trying to escape them. I felt like I was living this experience in real time for a while, and it was such a struggle to finally get rid of their negative energy. In the visual within the music video and lyrically, I finally get rid of the person chasing me, and they’re no longer in my rearview mirror, meaning I finally have a clearview.“
On the collaboration, NOAHFINNCE adds, “I had a great time working on Clearview with Sophie, excited for this ABSOLUTE BANGER to come out!”
At just 17 years old, Sophie Powers is a bold voice beyond her years. She understands the unique pressures of modern girlhood and uses her experience to write unfiltered, devil-may-care anthems about the ups and downs of being yourself. One minute she’s confident and cool, with the sneering attitude of a punk rock front woman, and the next she’s vulnerable and raw, channeling the loneliness of contemporary life in a stirring ballad. Combining the crunchy sound of punk with today’s hip-hop and pop, Powers is the sound of the future.
Sophie has enjoyed over a million streams since her debut ‘Lonely Army‘ earlier this year. Her recent collaboration with Kellin Quinn on ‘1 Thing‘ continued Sophie’s on-going conversation surrounding youth mental health, while her track ‘Life Goes On!!‘ reminds her peers the importance of moving on from heartbreak. Most recently, Sophie teamed up with fast-rising alternative singer/rapper DE’WAYNE on single ‘Greed,’ a rock anthem focused on the destructive results that come from one of the most deadly sins of all.

NOAHFINNCE is the alias of Noah Adams, a voice for a generation who are fed up of being told how to be. A virtuoso performer (he plays drums, guitar, bass, ukulele, and sings as LOUD as possible), NOAHFINNCE is ready to flip off tradition and any roles that society expects him to fulfil, and instead continues to champion authenticity and self-expression. Having amassed over 737,000 YouTube subscribers and over 346,000 Instagram followers, Noah brings his own alternative and no-nonsense take on LGBTQ+ issues.
With the release of his debut EP, ‘STUFF FROM MY BRAIN’, Noah puts the chaotic, frenetic energy of a mind exploding with ideas and thoughts on full display. A snapshot of his mind, ‘STUFF FROM MY BRAIN’ is a collection of 4am thoughts that Noah felt deserved more reflection – snatched out of his brain and BAM now they’re songs. Channeling the pop punk attitude of Green Day and Yungblud, ‘STUFF FROM MY BRAIN’ is chock-full of youthful anthems that range from the absurdly chaotic ‘LIFE’S A BIT’ to the self-deprecating, yet hopeful ‘KICKIN TRASH.’ Through equally brilliant visuals, the introduction of Mr. Rat and a cavalcade of characters, NOAHFINNCE has built a world that can only be described as ‘STUFF FROM MY BRAIN’.
