DEBUT ALBUM – FOLLOW THE CYBORG – OUT NOW
NORTH AMERICAN TOUR WITH NATION OF LANGUAGE CONTINUEaS
MISS GRIT – New York-based, Korean-American musician Margaret Sohn (they/she) – has today shared two new remixes. The first, from New York-based transdisciplinary artist, Yaz Lancaster (they / them) who recently performed with Miss Grit on their Stephen Colbert performance, and the second, from Brooklyn-based composer and visual artist who recently performed with Miss Grit on their European tour, Phong Tran.
Listen to Lain (phone clone) [Yaz Lancaster Remix]:
Both tracks are remixes of tracks from Miss Grit’s recently released debut album, Follow the Cyborg – out now on Mute on smokey marbled vinyl, CD and digitally – and follow the recently released remixes by Gilla Band’s Alan Duggan-Borges (‘사이보그를 따라와’), and composer and producer Aron Kobayashi Ritch (‘Perfect Blue’).
Listen to Nothing’s Wrong (Phong Tran Remix):
Miss Grit’s North American tour with Nation of Language continues with dates running through to the beginning of December – full details below.
Across their debut album, Follow the Cyborg – featuring the acclaimed singles ‘Follow the Cyborg’, praised by Pitchfork for its “adrenaline high” and “electronic dissonance.”, ‘Nothing’s Wrong’, ‘Lain (Phone Clone)’, and the “beguiling and elastic” (Stereogum) single ‘Like You’ –
Miss Grit (they/she), pursues the path of a non-human machine, as it moves from its helpless origin to awareness and liberation. At times gentle and sparse, at others volatile and explosive, Follow the Cyborg occupies a sonic world of electronic experimentation and stirring electric guitars. It was recorded mostly in solitude in Sohn’s home studio, with the exception of a few guest collaborators joining: Stella Mozgawa of Warpaint, Aron Kobayashi Ritch of Momma, and Pearla.
Miss Grit’s impetus to conceive an album about the life of a cyborg stems from their own connection to this way of existing. As a mixed-race, non-binary artist, Sohn has always rejected the limits of identity thrust upon them by the outside world, in favour of embracing a more fluid and complex understanding of the self.
Hailed by Rolling Stone as an “inventive, incisive singer-songwriter”, their process is introspective, their vision precise. In their exploration of the life of a cyborg, they subtly and overtly refer to films, including Her, Ex Machina, and Ghost in the Shell, as well as essays by Jia Tolentino (from Trick Mirror: Reflections on Self-Delusion) and Donna Haraway’s A Cyborg Manifesto.
