Does you music save your soul? It definitely saved mine after this kickstart to the heart thanks to Philly’s own SORAIA and their powerhouse new release “Tight-Lipped”!!! Releasing on 7″ vinyl their anthemic new track “Tight-Lipped” comes with their cover of Aerosmith‘s “Angel” featuring Jessie Wagner as a b-side!!!
You can buy this gorgeous vinyl (signed!) and receive a bonus acoustic cover of “Where Did You Sleep Last Night?” by Leadbelly – also famously covered by Nirvana and Mark Lanegan – along with all your other SORAIA merch needs here. While you wait for your vinyl to come in the mail you can stream the digital single (it’s been on repeat for me) by clicking here.
SORAIA are known for their electric, powerful and interactive live shows, and nothing makes me sadder than not being able to get sweaty in a room with you all, screaming this new jam at the top of our lungs- but lucky for us SORAIA have a live-stream show coming up on January 15th via Bowery Electric!! You can get your tickets now here– you won’t want to miss it- wherever you are quarantining, this will be the dance workout and rock outlet you needed.
“Tight-Lipped” could not have come at a better time. The song represents letting go of all fear to stand up and speak up. Lead Singer ZouZou Mansour says of the track:
” ‘Tight-Lipped’ is about a woman who politely refuses to challenge the status quo and direction of her life. It’s a final recognition of the part she has played in her own oppressive censoring – a soulful rebuke of her former beliefs on how to live. But by the end of the song, it becomes a triumphant declaration of who she now is: ” ‘Meet Ophelia–no more promises. I refuse to be so tight-lipped.’ “
