SOHN Releases Debut Album Tremors + US Tour
London-born, Austria-based singer/songwriter and producer SOHN hit the ground running as he released his debut album Tremors (iTunes) in Spring 2014 under 4AD - one of the most highly anticipated projects of the year.
If you haven’t caught on yet, SOHN’s sound is something resembling the kaleidoscopic, electronic undertones of Glass Animals paired with haunting vocals similar to London Grammar’s Hannah Reid. Tracks like Tremors and Bloodflows yield very ethereal tones that paint an atmospheric and misty picture that echo accents similar to Bon Iver.
This album as a whole can make you feel void, yet there is an enchanting, nightly feel that comes with that - a comfortability and sensitivity to the darkness and its ability to heighten emotions. SOHN produced a project that undeniably reflects his deep cognitive sensibility.
“I wanted Tremors to feel like fresh air,” says SOHN. “There’s something about the way I was working overnight on the album which found its way into the sound. Every night I worked finished with a cold sunrise and a walk home… and to me that’s what Tremors sounds like.”
Following the release, songs featured on Tremors quickly surpassed 8 million listens on Spotify (and counting). It swept #8 on Thump’s ‘50 Best Albums of 2014’ and #1 on Billboard’s ‘Top Heatseakers’ in December 2014.
In early May 2015, Sohn scheduled and began a tour that sent him throughout America- from Maine all the way to Cali. Check out a highlight from his U.S. run in the official live video, SOHN - Lights (Live Tremors Tour Video)
