Live Gig Video: SOHN performs four tracks live for Seattle radio station KEXP

I admit it. Ever since I heard ‘Artifice’ by SOHN, I’ve been addicted to the man’s music. Live, the Vienna-based English electronic musician is pretty much a one-man band, with synths, samplers and sequencers at the ready to pair beautifully with his soulful vocals. Unfortunately, I was in England when Christopher Taylor made his first visit to DC and I will just have to wait until winter before he returns. He’ll be playing a couple dates in the UK in September too.

In the meantime, we’ve got this amazing live performance of the always hooded Taylor, plus a bit of a chat with Cheryl Waters, all filmed at famed Seattle radio station KEXP. In it, he performs ‘Veto’, ‘Tempest’, ‘Artifice’ and ‘The Wheel’. The songs appear on his debut album ‘Tremors’, which came out in April on 4AD. Watch the magic unfold below.
