An award-winning actress as well as an enigmatic chanteuse, Soko's otherworldly folk-pop tones have drawn comparisons to the likes of Björk and Keren Ann. Born Stephanie Sokolinski in Bordeaux in 1986, she moved to Paris to study acting at age 17, and went on to appear in several French films, most famously, Xavier Giannoli's A l'Origine. In 2007, she scored a hit across Europe with "I'll Kill Her," and following a support slot on M.I.A.'s Kala tour and collaborations with the Go! Team and Cornershop, she founded her own label, Babycat Records, and released her debut EP, Not Sokute. In early 2009, she announced on MySpace that she was quitting the music industry, only to declare that she was "reborn" six months later, resulting in February 2012's full-length I Thought I Was an Alien. A comprehensive European tour immediately followed that album's release, and by September Soko was playing shows in the U.S. September 2014 saw her tour the U.S. once again, before March 2015 brought My Dreams Dictate My Reality. Produced by Ross Robinson -- who had previously worked with the Cure, among many others -- the record was a more rock-focused effort than her debut, and drew influence from '80s pop, new wave, and post-punk. While both "Monster Love" and "Lovetrap" featured vocals from Ariel Pink, the album also further showcased Soko's multi-instrumentalism. ~ Jon O'Brien & James Wilkinson
