“English not Austrian, solo not a band” is how musician Christopher Blake, better known as SOHN describes himself on his Twitter account. In 2010 Blake released his first songs as SOHN, “Warnings” and “Oscillate” on his Soundcloud page, and his EP “The Wheel” was released in late 2012. He remixed Lana Del Rey’s song “Ride” and has worked with other artists such as BANKS and Kwabs. He was described in an article by the Guardian as the sound of a lapsed choirboy aching soulfully over near-ambient electronica…a more tranquil Gotye.” SOHN will be performing at FunFunFun fest in Austin this year, but before then get your dose of electronic melecholia below.
