Singer, musician and composer Sofia Härdig is considered to be one of the leading acts coming out of Sweden with a sound organic and raw, explosively bursting out of the seams with energy. No stranger to the music industry, Härdig has worked with the likes of Sonic Youth’s Kim Gordon and Julia Crafitz of Pussy Galore, not to mention Grammy Award winning group The Hellacopters and more. In a sense the Swedish artist reflects the very idea of what a true rock star looks, feels and sounds like. Whilst her native country has maintained a tradition of pumping out pop acts, Härdig’s music is experimental, racing, unafraid and unapologetic. Her visuals are performance art, something that was a staple in New York’s East Village punk and new wave scene or West Berlin in the 70s and 80s. With a two-part EP series landing titled The Street Light Leads To The Sea, Sofia Härdig’s power-blazing single ‘Sitting Still’ is a window of what’s to come, and it’s about to come with an impacting force.
For ColoRising Mixes 22, Sofia Härdig has curated a selection punk, indie, krautrock, noise and more. This one is an absolute sure-shot selection!
