About SOKO: Singer-songwriter-musician-actress SOKO is one-of-a-kind: intimate, vulnerable, vital, tear-stained, heartbreaking mixing lo-fi to ethereal, haunted sounds, often all at once. I Thought I Was An Alien is full of love and loss and worry, the kind of fundamental, life-dictating human feelings which are so far beyond rational explanation. SOKO has the rare ability to sing openly about those feelings, in a way which is utterly compelling, sometimes devastating, but also, completely uplifting. “The title I Thought I Was An Alien is about social alienation,” explains SOKO. The explosive young Frenchwoman’s songs have already touched people around the world, earning her a devoted, global following. Since her teens, SOKO has been on a roller coaster journey. From a stockpile of over 100 songs, she finally whittled them down to 14 for I Thought I Was An Alien. Prolific songwriting aside, SOKO is known for directing and creating all of her own music videos and artwork in her unique, DIY styleSOKO has appeared in 13 French films.
