London based songstress Sonia Stein is an exciting new pop voice. Despite a restless upbringing of traversing across continents (Berlin, Poland, America) the music Sonia Stein creates is beautifully anchored. Quietly determined she creates the sort of songs that are full of drama and emotional complexities describing ‘One Of Those Things’ as being about, ‘The stage of denial about the end of a relationship with someone or something. You hold onto it out of comfort and fear, hoping if you wait a little longer, some semblance of what you had in the first place will show up again. ‘ Produced by Liam Howe (FKA Twigs, Adele, Jessie Ware) the slow-burn R&B-tinged songs on her debut EP ‘One Of Those Things’ feature four songs of exquisite balladry through to the delicious pop of later track ‘Do You Love Me’.
Her songs unfurl themselves delicately, slowly creeping up on you when you least expect it. Like a sort of quiet devastation, these are songs that work their way into your subconscious and never let go.
