Popgun Presents: SOHN with Empress Of + Daniel James
The Vienna-via-London songbird who croons as well as he produces
If The xx sang more than they murmured and the Weeknd did electronica, it would sound a lot like SOHN, the soulful multi-instrumentalist from Vienna by way of London. His addictive, melancholic ballads have been dubbed "sadwave" by some, but by staying mellow and understated with skeletal drum lines and silken vocals, his music has gotten grander and more atmospheric with every digitized beat. The always charismatic Empress Of and Daniel James will also be on the bill, so go ahead and file this one under swoon-inducing. General admission. Over 21s only.
"His voice is delicate, floating over the listener like a cool and steady breeze."
