Here’s what we know about Soko so far.
1. She’s a musician
Soko already has a successful career as recording artist, and many fans consider her extremely underrated. The above video for her song “We Might Be Dead by Tomorrow” has 1,035,000 hits and counting on YouTube.
Her latest album, My Dreams Dictate My Reality, was released on iTunes on March 2.
2. And she’s an actress
In addition to her music career, Soko also has 34 acting credits to her name on IMDB. They’re predominately French films and television shows, but she’s recently made the leap to some American short films, like Hi, How Are You, Daniel Johnston? which you can watch below.
3. She’s a fashionista
Apparently Soko made quite a splash while attending 2016’s Paris Fashion Week and even caught the eye of Vogue editors.
“There were plenty of celebrities making the rounds in Paris Fashion Week’s front rows, but few had a look as inventive as Soko’s,” Vogue said in a March 10 article. “With her love of offbeat hats, embellished sunglasses and retro details, Soko’s expressive take on dressing was worlds away from the primp and polish we’ve come to expect from that world. Even while sporting pieces from the most elegant Parisian designers, she maintained an undone sensibility that felt organic and, frankly, refreshing.”
4. She’s an animal lover
Soko is vocal about being vegan and encourages her fans to follow suit.
And if you take a quick gander at her Instagram page, it’s obvious that she’s also obsessed with cats.
5. She’s a teetotaler
Soko may not have any addictions when it comes to alcohol and narcotics, but she is addicted to adrenaline.
“I don’t drink and I don’t do drugs, so I drink pots of coffee before I go onstage and I’m so wired and I get into a trance for an hour and a half, and I’m sweating and shaking and I feel like Ian Curtis, like my life is on the line each time I play a show,” she said in a 2015 interview with Pitchfork. “You get addicted to the adrenaline because it’s so full-on, and then you get off tour and you’re in withdrawal, like a drug addict. I just have too much energy!”
6. She might have ESP
“I would have nightmares about death where people around me would die — so, when I was a kid, I thought I was responsible for killing them,” she told Pitchfork. “Then I read about indigo children [who are believed to possess special abilities] and it made perfect sense that I was clairvoyant, or just so sensitive to the point that I could feel people being sick and dying around me.”
7. She’s in Chromeo’s video for “Jealous”
