Paradiso Indiestad presents: Sofie Royer (Cancelled)
NOTE: UNFORTUNATELY THIS CONCERT HAS BEEN CANCELLED
Sofie Royer, aka Sofie, is a Viennese artist and singer-songwriter. Harlequin is her new album, out this September on Stones Throw. The album showcases the musician’s passion for her native city’s opera and ballet traditions as well as the baroque lyricism of cabaret, medieval performances and the court jester. Blended with nostalgia for early aughts reality television and American mall punk subculture, Harlequin presents a montage of peculiar characters, vernacular settings and mysterious chronologies that are as theatrical as they are musical. Sofie’s latest song “Feeling Bad Forsyth Street” shares a glimpse into a brief period in New York City where she was “trapped after trying to pay off a personal debt accrued at the racing track”.
Sofie Royer is also known as a DJ and an original member of Boiler Room. She released her compilation Sofie’s SOS Tape on Stones Throw in 2016 featuring the track “Abeja” with Mndsgn. After the release of her debut album Cult Survivor on the label in 2020, Sofie started to experiment with her own identity through the act of dress-up. From Harlequin’s artwork through to Sofie’s live performances, she adopts the visual aesthetic and gestures of the court jester, clown and cabaret artist.
