The lyric video comes ahead of Sophie Doyle Ryder's debut EP, Beginner's Luck, due to land on May 13th.
Emerging Irish pop artist Sophie Doyle Ryder has returned with a lyric video for her 2022 single, 'Don't Want No Boyfriend.'
Combining words with hand drawn animations, the visual serves as much more than just a lyric video — it's a representation of Ryder's creative flow, offering an inside look at her songwriting process.
Inspired by her love for art, the video's constant moving imagery is a direct byproduct of the singer's passions; drawing and music combined into one. With stunning artwork depicting a still burning cigarette or rain lashing against tall windows, it adds a whole new dimension to the piece.
The song, a self proclaimed anti-Valentines Day track, was released in February of this year. It follows several singles over the past three years, including 'Hunni Hunni,' 'Little Black Book' and 'Too Much,' coming before the May 13th release of the 19-year-old's debut EP Beginners Luck.
“You can really feel the rollercoaster of emotions throughout," the singer said on her debut. "It feels like to perfect time to release this EP."
After being named one of RTÉ 2FM's One to Watch, being signed to Paradigm Talent Agency and booking two headline gigs in support of Beginner's Luck, 2022 is set to be an exciting year for the Dublin native.
Sophie will be playing both the Forbidden Fruit and Independence Festivals this summer, and a May 6th date at the Workman's Club in Dublin.
