London-based singer-songwriter Sonia Stein was born in Berlin, Germany and moved to Poland and then America before finally settling down in England to begin her music career.

In November 2014, she released her debut EP, Symbol, which was later reissued in 2016, and even though a debut album was slated for an early 2015 release, it never materialized. Instead, Stein released her second and third EPs, One of Those Things and Eat Your Words, in August 2017 and March 2019, respectively, and her fourth EP, See Me Now, arrived in late January.

See Me Now is dramatic and emotionally complex, touching on themes related to love and relationships with lyrics describing common situations in a way that is thoughtful and introspective.

The lead single, “London Used to Feel So Cool”, describes the all-too-familiar scenario following a breakup when anything and everything reminds you of your ex. In Stein’s case, the city of London used to be her favorite place but now serves as a constant reminder of what was and what could’ve been.

The second single, “Coexist”, addresses the dichotomy between being in love and knowing the relationship has to end if one person is unable to provide what the other one needs and vice versa, and the third single, “Passerby”, is about jealousy and the need to be noticed by the person you love. Interestingly enough, the title of the EP comes from a lyric found in this song, making “Passerby” an essential track.

Although not officially confirmed, See Me Now could be seen as a new beginning for Stein’s career based on the presence of a re-recorded version of “Symbol” — the title track from her first EP — appearing as the closing track, hinting at the possibility of her debut album finally seeing a release in the near future, but in the meantime, See Me Now is available now across all online and streaming platforms.
