SoKo Bio

The rising singer/songwriter blasts in with 'We Might Be Dead by Tomorrow' thanks to its inclusion in clothier Wren's 'First Kiss' ad campaign. You know the video...the video that had strangers off the street kiss.

Within every punk, there’s a kid who just wants to be loved. Armed with loss, heartbreak and a voice that cries for help, multitalented French enchantress Soko is the kind of rebel who gives out kisses instead of black eyes, who steals hearts instead of wallets, and gets trashed on tea instead of liquor. However, she won’t hesitate to wreak havoc and cartwheel on stage whenever she can, alternating between playing reverbed-out electric guitar, bass, keyboard, and drums and singing her heart out with total abandon.

Once a soft-spoken singer-songwriter, Soko’s music quickly caught up with her untamable persona. Three years after her debut album “I Thought I Was An Alien,” she has revamped her once innocent yet morbid folk into an insolent follow-up record, “My Dreams Dictate My Reality,” due March 2015. Produced by the legendary Ross Robinson (who also produced her favorite band, The Cure) the album features the hypnotic duet “Lovetrap” with friend and lo-fi wizard Ariel Pink.

My Dreams Dictate My Reality brims with angst, shouts, and beautiful chaos throughout, but it’s clear from Soko’s pleas for redemption on “Temporary Mood Swings” that her volatility is the product of being “the victim of her own desire.” On “Peter Pan Syndrome,” she expresses a hyperawareness of her own mortality, her voice charged with a fiery resistance to growing old. Her intensity expresses more of a need to revert than revolt. Before she became a twenty-something punk, Soko was a self-assured adult at sixteen, courageously leaving her French village outside Bordeaux all on her own. She pursued an acting career that would eventually earn her César nominations and the Best Actress award at Mar Del Plata International Film Festival for her performance in the film Augustine. Her bold venture out into the world was the culmination of a childhood spent as an outsider and struggling to comprehend the losses she faced at an early age. Soko’s upcoming album is as much a confrontation of that dark past, as a manifestation of a new reality.
