English expat singer, multi-instrumentalist and producer SOHN will be making his first appearance on Australian shores this winter, treating Melbourne’s Ding Dong Lounge to a headline show on June 25th.

After producing tracks for the likes of Kwabs and Banks and releasing a handful of acclaimed singles of his own, SOHN – real name Christopher Taylor – released one of the most highly anticipated albums of the year in his debut Tremors (out now through 4AD/Remote Control Records).

Relocating from South London to immerse himself in Vienna’s flourishing electronic scene, the album draws inspiration from the two contrasting landscapes that SOHN calls home. Tremors finds the perfect balance between London’s buzzing hubbub and Vienna’s serene and calming backdrop in eleven hypnotic tracks including lead single ‘Artifice’.

Recorded entirely at night,SOHN would finish each overnight recording session with a cold sunrise on his walk home from the studio. The influence of the lush and cinematic scenery that surrounded him during the recording process can be seen in Tremors’ breathy and sparse sound.

‘The dark venue was perfect for his sensual, moody electro-soul, and his breathy voice wooed the audience as it rose above swirling beats… intricate, stirring, and wholly engrossing.’ – MXDWN

‘Even though the chords are minor and the mood sombre, there’s something pure, clean and uncluttered about the record that prevents it from being altogether sad. It breathes.’ – NOW Magazine

‘SOHN is partial to sampling his own voice to augment the wounded confessionals. They stutter rhythmically and mix with a patchwork of minimal yet intricate electronics and low end beats to spine-tingling effect’ – Q Magazine

‘Sure to be a hit with the disenfranchised, give the man a single bulb to perform under on stage and fans will be riveted.’ – Clash

Don’t miss the opportunity to see SOHN grace our shores for the very first time. An artist on the rise, this may be your one and only chance to catch him in such intimate venues.
