Since signing to the label in Spring, Vienna-based Londoner SOHN has been busy collaborating with various acts, including producing the recent Banks track 'Waiting Game' and remixing Angel Haze's debut single 'Echelon (It's My Way)', as...
4AD are delighted to welcome SOHN to the fold.
First appearing late last year, SOHN (pronounced Sonn) has wasted no time in making a name for himself, both on record and live. Having escaped the lonely nighttime streets of London for the mountainous landscapes of Austria the previous year, SOHN's distinctive sound emerged naturally as he found inspiration in the contrasts between the two places he has called home. Considered and emotive, the results are astounding.
Informed by Vienna’s rich legacy of electronic music, SOHN creates a sound that blends his haunting vocals with a backdrop of analogue drum machines and synths, which makes nods to the past, but always forges forward into the new. Aside from emphasising the soulfulness of his voice, his lyrics expertly play with the phonetics of language, wrapping his sonorous vocals around the gaps between sentences and lending those words more prominence.
