Sofie Fatouretchi was born in California to Austrian and Iranian parents, and spent time in Vienna studying at music conservatory in her teens. Over the last 6 months or so she’s been releasing a steady stream of very good bedroom pop, so hopefully there’s an album coming before too long. Try To Reach Me is restrained yet quietly insistent, and I especially love the twangy bass guitar that rolls in halfway through. Sofie was also one of the original Boiler Room US crew and has put together a number of excellent mixes over the years, including this one for XLR8R which is worth checking out.
EDIT: Just found out that the album is due this week – so really not long to wait at all.
