I believe I have found a worthy substitute for Chet Faker while he takes a timeout to work on new material. The Vienna-based, UK born S O H N just released ‘Red Lines’, a nostalgic and melancholic wonder. Parallels between S O H N and Faker’s latest EP resonate eerily throughout ‘Red Lines’, especially in terms of the muffled, dreary flavour that Faker recently made his own. But hey, check it out to make up your own mind.
S O H N will release his new EP The Wheel on 5 November. In the meantime, you can download a free copy of the single ‘Oscillate/Warnings’ from his Facebook page.
