At 25 Bridie Monds-Watson, better known as SOAK, has built a huge name for themselves, and they are on the cusp of releasing their third LP. For our May issue, SOAK reflects on their evolution and recentering of sound and self. Here’s your teaser for what they had to say:
Making their latest album…
“I really found myself with this record. I think previously I’ve tailored my music towards what I thought people expected of me.”
Their coming out journey…
“‘Non-binary’ was not a word I had heard of at the time that I was coming out as gay.”
Breaking free from external expectations…
“The music I love most is the simplest, and I actually prefer more raw recordings – the ones that sound more unfinished. You can feel the heart.”
