Sweden… Now, ready to take the rest
of the world by storm, she has

with screeching guitars and

stunning, raw vocals of Hardig,
‘Streets’ is a gritty, anthemic
creation which will suck you into
its intense energy. With shades of

STREETS gets attention in purple
The multi-instrumental Sofia Härdig
is the latest example of another
world class Scandinavian export
that’s been dominating the music
scene for a while now.
Great review of new single STREETS
coming in from New York!
multi-instrumentalist Sofia Härdig
is part of a growing list of Swedish
artists, who have received both
regional and international
attention; in fact, in her native
Sweden, Härdig is considered “the
rocktronica queen of experimental
music.”… the EP’s first single
“Streets” possesses an urgent and
raw grittiness as slashing guitar
chords, squalls of feedback, a
throbbing bass line and propulsive
drumming are paired with anthemic
hooks and Härdig’s sultry vocals”.
NEW MUSIC: Sofia Härdig has released
the her new single which appears on
her forthcoming LP And The Street
Light Leads To The Sea.
Sofia has collaborated with the
likes of Sonic Youth’s Kim Gordon,
Pussy Galore’s Julia Crafitz on Free
Kitten, as well as Belle and
Sebastian’s Stevie Jackson.

"Brash and bold, Sofia Härdig has
unleashed her latest single
‘Streets’, a thunderous slice of
experimental rock... Hailing from
multi-instrumentalist clashes icy
strings with a kicking drum pattern
that runs consistently. Rawness
spews from her passionate vocals,
clear and uncaged they brood
emotion... Brewing a darkness below
its turbulence, the rocktronica
queens finds freedom in
experimenting and releases
aggression with wonderful freedom...
'Streets'is noisy and cold,
industrial and even brutal, but
spills soul from the heart.
Let love in."

this slightly frenetic, edgy rocker,

song owes to SY, as well as The

"Rocktonica Queen" New single in Music&Riots Magazine!!! MusicAndRiots
Great review of new single in Nooga!
”Her music is strident and infused with a natural punk attitude and riotous rhythmic sensibility. Her voice casts a bewildering spell as the music crashes down around you. Luxuriating in post-punk's roiling waters, she treads out further than many of her astringent peers and finds an entirely new noise out there in the deep… underneath the noise is a melody that just won't leave your head— her ability to pair the ragged sounds of her music with an unforgettable melodic precision is exactly what keeps her two steps ahead of anybody else who happens to be treading these waters….. You'll be covered in sweat and grime by the time the song ends, and you'll absolutely be anxious to do it all again immediately.” Nooga
