The buzz is building, their EP (Not SoKute) sold out and the public is craving more… an album is sure to follow soon.
So how does one describe SoKo? If you’ve seen the charming 2001 feature film Amélie, then imagine Amélie making self-deprecating indie music. Quirky, spunky, and devishly sweet, and all in all, delicious.
“I’ll Kill Her” is the track that has led to huge interest in this unique Paris-based group. It is truly unlike anything out there – and as much as that’s been said before, in this case, it’s unequivocally true.
