S O H N – Bloodflows

The vocalist and producer continues to build on his already-trademark sound.


Words by: Aimee Cliff

Bloodflows is the latest innovative, melancholy love song to come from S O H N, a Vienna-based British artist who we’re expecting big things from in 2013.

Subdued and listless, the pulse of Bloodflows lies in the self-reflecting downward spiral of a refrain, “my love, my love, my love don’t love me”. Things begin in the realm of conventionality, with S O H N’s vocal taking centre stage against a backdrop of soft-footed synth chords; before long, though, his now-trademark blurring of boundaries kicks up the dust and causes chaos, intertwining distorted and non-distorted vocals with flashes of production that are both emotionally on-point and yet more playful than he’s sounded before. It’s the most fun you’ll have thinking about heartbreak today.
