In The Night — Soma

Stockholm-based musician Soma last appeared on these pages last year with her effervescent single, Slow, which energetically portrayed the experience of cautiously moving on from someone.

What struck me about Slow was the way it still felt like it hinted at possibility and hope, whilst dealing with a topic that ultimately invokes sadness. In a sense, In The Night picks up where that song left off, in that it shimmers with an exciting sense of possibility. Where Slow was about letting go and moving on emotionally, In The Night is a tribute to humanity, and more specifically our bodies. Describing the song, and the significance of its release now, Soma says:

“This is a song I’ve had with me for the past 3 years. It has seen many phases, several different productional styles, and finally found its form on the cusp of the pandemic that we’ve all come to know so well. In March 2020, I made the decision to put the release on hold. At a time when the world was, and still is, struggling to cope with deep shock, friends and family members losing their jobs, and some of their health and lives, a song that so brutally celebrated the body felt like a sin.

“Today, the same song that started out as a catchy tune with no remarkable depth, is nothing short of a tribute to our magnificent human bodies. Big or small, confined or free to move, in pain or in bliss, our human bodies are the containers and the pure expressions of life stories. From our nearly unbearable intergenerational trauma to our secret one-night-stands.”

In The Night is the first track Soma has produced herself and comes in advance of her upcoming EP, Make Me Human.
