Sofie Mathiasen – Magnetic Love – Press Kit

The Song

„When I heard the demo for the first time, Sofie had just turned 16. I was stunned. How is it possible for a person of that age to create a piece of such depth and insight? I wanted to find out more, understand the story behind the song. As a producer, I always do. One day, as Sofie’s mother (who was by her side throughout the whole process) left the control room, I turned to her and asked: ‚Just wondering… is this a true story?‘ ‚Yes‘, Sofie smiled. ‚ It happened to a friend of mine.‘

That answer struck me. Not only because none of the singer/songwriters I had worked with (including myself), have ever written about something that was beyond their personal experience, but also because it resonated with what I had heard in interviews with successful, young female artists like Billie Eilish or Holly Humberstone.

It struck me, that – and I may be wrong, of course – this sounded like the voice of a new generation: caring critics, willing to both observe and participate in the world as it is here and now.

The Words

She looks straight ahead 
Avoiding their eye contact
Tension so thick 
A knife could slice through it
She’s trying to move on
He’s trying to keep her close
He’s broken her heart but 
She can’t seem to let him go

Started as one 
Ripped apart 
Left them both with nasty scars
Despite all the hurt
They know in the end
They’ll end up in each other’s arms

She’s positive he won’t change
Maybe that’s 
Why she stays 
Opposites in every way
Where she goes
He meets her half way
Attract then repel
Like under some spell 
They just can’t seem to separate 
They’ve both tried give it up
They can’t shake
Their magnetic love

She consumes his mind
No matter what he does
He tells himself he’s fine
But she’s all that he thinks of 
He’ll push her away 
Then he’ll feel empty when she’s gone
Tell her that he changed 
Without knowing what he did wrong 

Started as one
Ripped apart 
Left them both with nasty scars
Despite all the hurt
They still don’t learn and end up 
In each others arms

She’s positive he won’t change
Maybe that’s 
Why she stays 
Opposites in every way
Where she goes
He meets her half way
Attract then repel
Like under some spell 
They just can’t seem to separate 
They’ve both tried give it up
They can’t shake
Their magnetic love

It’s gone on so long (Don’t)
This back and forth (Leave)
One second fine (Stay) 
The next slamming the door (With me)
Watch from afar (Don’t you see)
One cant even start to understand (You’re all I need)
Why they go back for more

He’s got feelings he can’t face 
He’s so scared 
Of the pain (Cause she’s all he’s ever known
No he can’t let it go) 
Hates how she’s the only one
Who makes him feel
Like he can’t walk away oh
Attract and repel 
Like under some spell
They just can’t seem to separate 
They’ve both tried to give it up
They can’t shake 
Their magnetic love
