Ahead of European Tour, SOHN Drops Two Brilliant New Songs

Electropop artist SOHN shares two new stunning songs ahead of his upcoming European tour.

Electropop singer and producer SOHN has created a stunning sound with his affecting, ethereal voice married to gentle electronics and the occasional acoustic instrument such as the piano. Both of SOHN's albums, Tremors and Rennen, are highly unique and original and worth exploring in-depth. Ahead of SOHN's upcoming European tour, the artist has released two new singles, "Hue" and "Nil". Both are fairly downtempo affairs driven by the singer's gorgeous voice with "Hue" even borrowing a touch of Burial's sound in the later moments of the song. "Hue" kicks off with delicate piano notes and the lightest of synth tones as SOHN opines that he will "never find another like you". Both songs fit neatly into SOHN's repertoire and show him continually innovating.
