    If you like Sia, listen to Sophia Somajo.

    Stockholm-based singer-songwriter Sophia Somajo is the pop artist for the friend who says they're not into pop. With an infectious, metallic sound, booming vocals, and a growing repertoire of catchy hooks, Somajo (a.k.a. Soso) gives the genre new depth.

    After a brief hiatus, the singer burst back onto the international music scene in late 2015 with "Klein Blue," an electric self-love anthem that nods to French artist Yves Klein. Now, with her silky, simmering new track "Sapphire," Somajo is impossible to ignore.
