More Info:

Vinyl LP pressing. Sofie is a musician and artist based in Vienna. Best known as a DJ, she releases her self-produced debut album, Cult Survivor, a collection of leftfield pop songs inspired by chanson, heartbreak and life's overwhelming decisions. Cult Survivor was written as a direct response to Sofie's difficult personal experiences, emphasized throughout dreamy and melancholic songs like 'Asleep' and 'Figueroa'. Her writing process was intuitive: 'I just ended up sitting down whenever I could, and the songs were just there. I'd hear them in my head or in dreams, and then write them down.' The resulting songs draw on an unexpected range of influences: French chanson, cult experimental musician Gary Wilson, '60s pop ballads. Inspired by the way Todd Rundgren and Serge Gainsbourg convey stories in their songs, Sofie draws on her own heartache and blends fiction with reality on 'Hollywood Walk of Fame' and 'Georgia Waves'. An honest and graceful debut, Cult Survivor establishes Sofie's talent as a songwriter, moving through complex love stories, raw memories, and new beginnings.
