Truly coming into her own, ‘Somebody’ highlights SOHMI’s multidimensional skills as a singer, songwriter, and producer. Building a euphoric soundscape around her lush vocals, SOHMI hones in on her unique blend of soulful pop mixed with melodic techno, a sound she’s coined as ‘minimal pop-tech’. ‘Somebody’ serves as the first taste of SOHMI’s upcoming Recital EP, due out early 2023, and marks the beginning of the next chapter in SOHMI’s career.
Reflecting on the past year, SOHMI said, “A lot has happened and changed since my last release, and I’ve spent a lot of time diving deeper into my own personal history in order to better understand who I am; why I hurt the way I hurt, why I love the way I love. All of it has been at once challenging and fulfilling at the same time, but most of all, it’s been beautiful to confront who I am as a person and how that’s shaped the artist I am and strive to be today.”
Speaking about the track, SOHMI added, “I think ‘Somebody’ is sort of the first piece of that story, as it takes a step backwards into some personal history of mine while looking ahead and forward, sonically. It’s part of a greater whole, my first 4-track EP, and probably my most personal body of work to date.”
Newer to the scene with her debut release in 2020, SOHMI’s unique ear for production and her soulful, pop-inspired vocals showcased in the eclectic track continue to earn her places on the most revered stages in the music world. The release follows SOHMI’s incredible summer performing at festivals including Coachella, Bonnaroo, Lightning In A Bottle, Electric Forest, Elements Festival, North Coast Festival, and opening sets for legends like RÜFÜS DU SOL, Boris Brejcha, and Hot Since 82.
From becoming the first Korean-American resident of LA’s renowned underground techno club, Sound, to founding her own label Permission, SOHMI’s acceleration through the music world is nothing short of impressive. The Los Angeles-based artist has been cultivating her musical prowess since learning classical piano at the early age of 3 and her catalog includes past releases on Yotto’s Odd One Out, Astralwerks, and a collaboration with Booka Shade on their Blaufield Music label.
SOHMI invites fans to get lost in the atmospheric sounds of her new single ‘Somebody’.
