House of Solo calls the release "stellar" and says:
Having gained widescale press acclaim, racked up an impressive number of streams and proved a hit in the web3 space, a multi-talented California-born, London-based newcomer today reveals her stellar sophomore EP, Before I Go. A collection of winsome, autobiographical folk-pop songs showcasing Sophia Alexa’s fluttering vocals and gorgeous instrumentation, the EP serves as a further testament that this is an artist to watch over the coming months.
Sophia explains "The EP ‘Before I Go’ is about navigating my way through my relationship with myself and the world. It starts off with ‘To A Fault’ which describes my loyalty being used against me. The other songs touch on my fears around relationships such as settling, changing too soon and being stuck in the past of what used to be. I like to think of the EP as me trying to uncover how I view the world and others. I’m kind of exposing my own faults as a way to hopefully connect to others."

Of the new songs and EP, Sophia explains, "I wrote ‘World's Heaviest Shoes’ based on the idea of someone who’s completely moved on while you’re still in the same place, reminiscing the memories you had. In the writing session, the writer I was with had mentioned the line ‘world's heaviest shoes’ as a metaphor for that feeling of being stuck and it felt like the perfect way to describe it. The chorus is almost a plea for help, wondering why no one’s paying attention. I like how it ends desperate and angry, almost shouting, because you’re left without answers."
"'To A Fault' was a song I’d been wanting to write. I wanted to use the concept of feeling like you’re loyal to a fault. When your good personality traits are working against you. The song is for people that feel like they are being used for their kindness."
