Review: Sophia Scott - "White Fence"

Like a straight shot of Jameson from a Solo Cup, the memorable burn of Sophia Scott’s country-pop anthem “White Fence” only gains more attitude with each listen.

Scott strikes a winning balance with this song: her powerful vocals shine with straightforward declarations like the opening “I don’t need a white fence/I don’t need no man at home/I don’t need a white dress/No, I’d rather die alone,” which sheds any question of what this song is about, and who it’s for: the woman who loves country just as strongly as she loves herself.

With an addicting, twang-influenced beat to drive the lyrics home, Scott’s defiance of ladylike conventions and rules doesn’t just stop at the fence—it’s here to bring the whole house down.
