SOHN - SOHN Returns With 'Figureskating, Neusiedlersee' & Announces European Tour
SOHN : SOHN Returns With 'Figureskating, Neusiedlersee' & Announces European Tour
11th May 2022

Today, British producer and songwriter SOHN returns after a four-year absence with an emotive new single ‘Figureskating, Neusiedlersee’.  Inspired by the Tom Waits song ‘Alice’ and named for a lake in Austria, ‘Figureskating…’ is a wistful look back at past relationships and the pressure to sustain the intensity of early romance.

“The metaphor of skating a love’s name, etching it into the ice, really struck me – the danger of falling through increasing with each repetition. I love the imagery of that.” SOHN explains.
