Bittersweet by S.O.S.
S.O.S. is the project of Sophie Debattista, and “Bittersweet” is the opening cut from her debut EP “Edges Of The Mind”. It has a pretty dark-wave and hazy ambiance to it. The opening synths and slow going lingering beats hold you high in their force and edginess. Sophie’s smoky vocals color the melody with dim tones, and give it a bold character.
“Bittersweet” opens up a world of charming darkness and mystery , waking up an actual bittersweet mood.
The story behind it, as Sophie herself said, is about a man who dedicated a lot of time to his work, to a point where his personal life suffered. Kind of reminds of that quote from “The Shining” – ” All work no play makes Jack a dull boy.”
