Now she’s shared the (sort of, not quite) title track and opener from the record, ‘Still Clean’, and for the most part it’s a sparse and deeply emotional cut from Sophie Allison that swells in intensity at its climax. Sophie says of the track: “‘Still Clean’ discusses the hopelessness of waiting for someone who’s abandoned you”.
She continues: “It uses this idea of being ‘clean’ to explain the feeling of being stuck waiting for someone, hoping that they haven’t moved on from you. When you are stuck in this place of waiting you kind of put your world - and you memory of them - on pause. But as the song shows, sometimes people keep moving while you’re standing still, and sometimes you’re the only one who’s left clean”.
