On Miss Massive Snowflake’s fourth album, So Sweet, Shane de Leon weaves stories of heartbreak, loss of trust, family, and social media into eight songs that take us through an exploration of how love can sometimes walk a fine line of pain.
The album’s first single Hard To Know is an upbeat song showing that it’s not always easy to know where to go when you can’t quite figure out where you’re at.
So Sweet shows a moodier side of Miss Massive Snowflake and features the Nina Simone cover Turn Me On.
