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.
