Sofia’s musical adventure began early. As a child she made melodies and harmonies to the sound of vacuum cleaners and car engines, which was driving her parents crazy. In early stages of adulthood her main playground was broken blues and deformed rock with references to for example Nick Cave’s and Suicides most claustrophobic outbreaks. In 2006 however, her critically acclaimed album „The Need to Destroy“ marked a shift towards sexy electronica, heavy dance beats, grinding guitars and menacing industrial sounds. The two following album, the Berlin-conceived „Dream“ from 2008 and 2013 hailed album ”The Norm of the Locked Room“ further developed her electronic expression both experimentally and improvisational, with her disturbing, incantatory voice ever present. Her last Album: The Norm Of The Locked Room (2013) got rave reviews and was stated as one of that years most interesting releases by national and international press. Her New album: And The Street Light Leads To The Sea is being released worldwide 28 october this year.
