Sohn Lessons on Limited Edition 12" Vinyl
Contrasting an anxious minimalism with the strident clarity of his voice, Vienna-based Londoner Sohn's debut single "The Wheel" invited acclaim for his unique approach and expert blend. As excitement continued to build following packed shows at SXSW and remixes of Lana Del Rey and Rhye, he signed to 4AD in the summer of 2013, releasing singles "Bloodflows" and "Lessons" (focused around a spiralling arpeggio) on limited 12" vinyl later the same year. A trait running through these releases is Sohn's close interest in the use of language and assonance, using the space around his lyrics to inform the subtlety of his production and accentuate his soulful delivery. This attention to detail and emotive resonance has seen great critical reception and public praise from contemporaries like Miguel and Lorde to name a few.
