“This is a song about enjoying the moment after the struggle; about recognising that we are all worthy of our dreams; it’s a reminder that no matter your situation, we can all succeed and be better. I come from Peru, a country where there are little opportunities for artists, and somehow I’ve ended up in London. I’ve seen first-hand that the possibilities are endless.”
About We Are Gold
Produced at Metropolis Studios with Ben Collier (Jess Glynne, James Bay, The Script, Little Miz, James Arthur), ’We Are Gold’ is the stunning debut single from Zophy Ohr. Like its creator, the song brims with cosmopolitan, rootless and charismatic charm, immediately marking Zophy as an undeniable potential heavy-hitter in pop’s landscape. It’s a life-affirming meditation on the limitless potential inside us all. Writing it was an act of transcendence for Zophy. Born in the melting pot of Peru, she has seen the effects of a government and a society that tries to clip the aspirational wings of its people. Through a unique fusion of Latin music stylings with classic pop structure and melody, Zophy tears down the borders between global pop and provincial world music. Crossing boundaries is the central metaphor of ‘We Are Gold’, but Zophy reminds us that the most important boundaries to shed are the ones imposed on us by ourselves and by others. She arrives bearing an important message. It’s time to listen.
‘’Zophy Ohr comes from a dream I had that had a lot of meaning for me. I like that it represents the art and creativity that lives within me.’’
