A hypnotic blend of clear vocals, electric guitar riffs and mesmeric beats, New York-based, Korean-American musician Margaret Sohn aka Miss Grit has shared their latest single, ‘Like You’. Released to coincide with the news that Sohn has signed to Mute Records, the track is a captivating soundscape that explores the conflicting nature of our inner voices, weighing up which ones to trust and which ones to ignore.
“I had the character of Ex Machina in mind as the voice I was singing from,” Sohn explains about the inspiration behind their new track, which they produced and recorded themselves. “Her arc in the movie felt really beautiful to me, and I wanted to reach the same ending as her in this song.” Through their soft vocals and clear intonation, Sohn brings this android imitation to life, accompanied by the distinct basslines of Zoltan Sindhu.
As a mixed-race, non-binary artist, Sohn has always used their art in order to explore, connect with, and understand their own identity further. Their self-released 2021 EP, Impostor, addressed their “life-long journey through racial impostor syndrome,” whilst their debut EP Talk Talk, tackled the complexities of relationships. On new release ‘Like You’, Sohn once again views life from a different angle, providing listeners with a magnetic musing on what it’s like to dismantle these parts of yourself.
Signing to Mute records has boosted Sohn’s confidence in this journey even more. “Mute is one of the labels I put on a pedestal in my mind,” Sohn comments, “so the fact I was even on their radar was really flattering. And then to think they believed in my music enough to want to work together made me so happy.”
