A self-described “loner” and introvert, 21-year-old Philine Sonny grew up in a small German city, spending much of her free time hunkered down in her bedroom, where she taught herself how to write and produce. A DIY approach has always been instilled with Philine’s creative endeavors. Beyond writing and producing her own material, she creates and edits a lot of her media—from visualizers and vlogs to canvases and artworks while dabbling with stop motion for upcoming content. Lyrically, she draws inspiration from close relationships while unpacking how
it feels to experience depression, imposter syndrome in friendships, and growing up in a hometown that never felt like a home to her
Philine Sonny shares this about her new single, “‘Drugs’ is the soundtrack to the movie playing in your head. It’s a romanticized idea of what life would look like if one was bold and reckless enough to let go of fear and daring to lose
everything for the sake of feeling alive.

The new single, Drugs” springs to life with dreamy, layered vocals, plaintive guitar, and a soaring chorus. It touches upon those coming-of-age movie moments, where there’s excitement in the air but altruistically the characters, young and in love, come to different crossroads, unsure where to find road to the next frontier of life.
Drugs” is available at all digital retailers here:
