Hero image for Sophie
I think I wrote it when I was 17, and I never played it to anyone, because I was a bit shy about things then — didn't play it to the girl.
– Songwriter Gareth Thomas on the origins of 'Sophie', Stuff, 28 July 2017
It’s a solid concept, but there’s no way I would have come up with it if Gareth, the singer of the song, hadn’t decided to be absent for the video shoot. Limitations can help create good ideas.
– Director Joe Lonie
I always thought of it as 'excellent idea, passable execution'. But now I feel better about it. I knew the song was really special, it’s super-catchy — you feel like you’ve heard it before but you haven’t.
– Director Joe Lonie on the song, and his video
