New York City singer-songwriter Sofia Delicari is proving that she is one to watch through her latest captivating release, “Electric Violet”.
Delicari has always been inspired by the power that storytelling through music holds, and it became a huge motivating factor in her pursuit to create music from a very young age. Only 17 years old, Delicari has already managed to release an EP entitled Suburban Horror in April of 2021, along with this most recent hit, “Electric Violet” which came out in January of this year. It’s safe to say that we are blown away by her drive and dedication to her craft, and can’t wait to see where this takes her.
Now, let’s take a deeper look into Sofia Delicari’s latest “Electric Violet” release. The song opens up with a driving synth line, surf-style guitar, and Delicari’s intimate, upfront vocals. We are immediately intrigued by her smooth tone and compelling vocal delivery. Her verses are softer and intimate, contrasting wonderfully to the chorus where she soars, showing off her vocal prowess.
“Electric Violet” opens up in its instrumentation throughout the course of the song, incorporating a gritty electric guitar and bass as well as a forceful drum line that helps propel the energy forward. We are loving the genre-blending aspects of this track, seamlessly combining elements of Indie Pop, Rock, and even some Punk mixed in there.
Throughout the single, Sofia Delicari explores the concepts of youthful love and the fascination and spontaneity that naturally come along with it.
“I just can't explain my hyper fixation on your adoration
And I'm wasting all my time trying to make you mine”
We’ve all been there before, infatuated with someone that is just out of our reach, and Delicari paints this image perfectly in her songwriting.

Welcome to BuzzMusic, Sofia Delicari! We are so happy to have you here and want to give you a big congratulations on your latest release, "Electric Violet." Can you tell us a bit about the inspiration behind the song?
Thank you! In "Electric Violet," I try to encapsulate the feelings of ecstasy and intensity of adolescent infatuations. When writing the song, I thought of the type of moments that embraced those feelings and kept visualizing flashing violet lights. Purple, in general, represents spirituality, and to me, that is in tune with the song's theme of reaching out to one's dreams.
We really love the instrumentation and production behind your vocals in "Electric Violet." Did you have an idea in mind of how you wanted the production to reflect the songwriting when you initially created "Electric Violet"? Who helped bring the sonics to life?
I wanted the music to have that electric lust buzz- to capture the emotions of looking at someone across the room and feeling your heart race or feeling a spark. I wanted the music to have those contrasting moments, the calmness and curiosity in the verses, and the bursting chorus. My former voice coach, Sonya Kitchell, and her husband, Howard Feibusch, helped me with the production. Having both of them as mentors in the studio was crucial for me to be able to truly find and finetune the sound I was going for.
How do you hope your fans will resonate with "Electric Violet" when hearing it for the first time?
I hope that they will feel that invigorating emotion and lightness, and just a general feeling of happiness and excitement.
We are really impressed by the quality of work you've managed to produce already at such a young age. Do you remember what first drew you into music and who your musical inspirations have been growing up?
I think just storytelling in general; I was always very interested in the human psyche, how people interact, psychological cycles and patterns, and just the contrast of collective and unique experiences. I am fascinated by how music can build bridges between people. I was drawn to start experimenting with that on my own as a form of both self-expression and as a way to connect with those around me. Inspirations I had from a younger age, and that really instigated my love of music, were Fleetwood Mac, The Cure, Mazzy Star, The Doors, and David Bowie. Just generally, these influences have found a way to create a safe space for their audiences within their discography. I always liked that feeling of being heard, understood, and represented, which is something I aspire to pursue within my music.
What's next for you?
I'm currently working on a music video for Electric Violet and on a second EP.
