Tremors by SOHN on Apple Music

11 Songs

EDITORS’ NOTES

SOHN initially made waves with his ultra-hip electro-soul remixes, but the producer/songwriter’s debut album showcases the breadth of his talent beyond the mixing board. Merging neo-soul melodies, crackling electronics and elements of dubstep and house, Tremors is a tour of elegant sonic minimalism and exquisite songwriting. The album’s soaring single, “Artifice”, displays these virtues in a tidy package, while downtempo tracks like “Lights”, “Bloodflows” and “Paralysed” are strung together in a mesmerising nocturnal soundtrack. While the title track delivers a clapping beat, a thick fog of analogue synths and an aching melody, Tremors closes with a mournful, masterful statement from an artist of seemingly unlimited potential.

About SOHN

London-based songwriter and electronic musician Toph Taylor started releasing music as SOHN in 2012, beginning with a few tracks online that eventually led to a 12" on the Aesop label called The Wheel. SOHN's sound melded soulful singer/songwriter fare with abstract electronic beats, gaining immediate acclaim and plenty of press exposure. He was quickly signed to 4AD, which released several singles leading up to debut album Tremors, which saw release in April of 2014. Prior to the album's release, Taylor worked on remixes and other various collaborations with artists like Rhye and Lana Del Rey. For his sophomore studio album, 2016's Rennen, Taylor took a more concise approach, preferring to highlight the vocal and melodic elements by utilizing fewer layers on every track. ~ Fred Thomas
