Brash and bold, Sofia Härdig has unleashed her latest single ‘Streets’, a thunderous slice of experimental rock.

Hailing from Scandinavia, the multi-instrumentalist clashes icy strings with a kicking drum pattern that runs consistently. Rawness spews from her passionate vocals, clear and uncaged they brood emotion.

Brewing a darkness below its turbulence, the rocktronica queens finds freedom in experimenting and releases aggression with wonderful freedom.

Stripped from the forthcoming two-part EP The Street Light Leads to the Sea, the single and EP was recorded in just three days, as Sofia handpicked musicians known to be wizards of improvisation. The record button was pushed, and they went wild.

Sofia says: "The song 'Streets' was recorded fast and with great urgency. We hit record and it was all there in one take. Voice and all. The guitar is mimicking synths things I've done in a really cool way. We all let go and submitted ourselves to the song and the moment. Without specified length of different parts and we could just follow where the song took us." 

'Streets'is noisy and cold, industrial and even brutal, but spills soul from the heart.

Let love in.
