S O H N, the Vienna-based British artist is the newest signing of the illustrious indie label 4AD. The previous week, S O H N revealed the video for his beautiful track Bloodflows, a track that first appeared online last month and that will see a release on vinyl in June via 4AD. Directed and filmed by Italian artist Christian Pitschl in the Bavarian Alps between Germany and Austria, it is a really simply yet effective video. It features a lone woman, Munich-based actress Nadja Langer, standing in various beautiful landscapes. A video that will make one recall the feelings of loneliness and isolation. When DummyMag interviewed him back in September 2012, he talked a little more about the relationship between place and music, saying:

Walking alone in -10 degree temperatures below railway arches in Vienna is inspiring, just as a busy night in London alone is inspiring, just as looking out of a window to the Acropolis in Athens is, or going from Brooklyn across the water to Manhattan alone. I guess most of my music is rooted in being alone with my thoughts, come to think of it.

First appearing late last year, London-born and Vienna-based musician SOHN has wasted no time in making a name for himself, both on record and live. Having escaped the lonely nighttime streets of London for the mountainous landscapes of Austria the previous year, SOHN’s distinctive sound emerged naturally as he found inspiration in the contrasts between the two places he has called home. SOHN creates a sound that blends his haunting vocals with a backdrop of analogue drum machines and synths, which makes nods to the past, but always forges forward into the new. Bloodflows’ is being released in June on 12″ and as a download, while currently he is working on his debut album.
