SORAIA – Philadelphia rock quartet returns with a new 7″ single, “Tight Lipped” (b/w cover of Aerosmith’s “Angel”, ft. Jessie Wagner)


Philadelphia rock quartet Soraia is giving fans new music for the start of the New Year.

The band will release a 7″ single titled “Tight-Lipped” (with a b-side cover of Aerosmith’s “Angel,” ft. a guest appearance by their Wicked Cool Records labelmate Jessie Wagner) on January 8th.

Stream/buy “Tight-Lipped” here:

Of the new track, frontwoman ZouZou Mansour says, “”Tight-Lipped” is about a woman who politely refuses to challenge the status quo and direction of her life.
It’s a final recognition of the part she has played in her own oppressive censoring – a soulful rebuke of her former beliefs on how to live. But by the end of the song, it becomes a triumphant declaration of who she now is: “‘Meet Ophelia–no more promises. I refuse to be so tight-lipped.'”

The single follows on the heels of Soraia’s most recent studio LP ‘Dig Your Roots’ which is streaming here: That album was produced and engineered by Geoff Sanoff (Bruce Springsteen, Fountains Of Wayne, Dashboard Confessional) and spawned a number of singles, including “Evergreen”, “Wild Woman” and “Superman is Gone.”

To celebrate the release of “Tight-Lipped”, Soraia will play a special event to be live-streamed from The Bowery Electric on January 15th at 8pm ET.

Tickets are available at and are also good for “on-demand” viewing through 1/22. A percentage of ticket sales will support #SaveOurStages to bring relief to independent venues impacted by the pandemic.
