Sophia Ivanko releases new Single

Sophia Ivanko (Sophy Ivy) added to her already impressive repertoire of original material today, with the release of a new song ‘Watchdog’

The haunting song, once again showcases Sophia’s unique indie sound first heard on her debut album C.F (Crazy friend).

As with many of the songs on her album, one cannot help but be impressed by the maturity of the songwriting and the topics Sophia chooses to address in her songs:

“The song about how we lock ourselves into a ′′ cage ′′ and cannot get out of it, because our consciousness, as a guard dog makes sure that we do not go beyond our comfort. But the key to the cage is ourselves.”

Watchdog is available now to listen to on all major music streaming platforms at https://sophyivy.ffm.to/wdog?

Sophia Ivanko will represent Ukraine at the 2019 Junior Eurovision Song Contest with The Spirit Of Music.

ESC Covers caught up with Sophia here at the Gliwice Arena. She is enjoying the experience and is excited by this big opportunity to share her music with the rest of the world. Sophia composed her song herself and has been writing music since a young girl.

Sophia took part in The Voice Kids Ukraine and her mentor was Jamala (the winner of Eurovision in 2016 for Ukraine). She gained a lot of valuable tips and inspirations from Jamala.

We wish Sophia lots of good luck for Sunday.
