Miss Grit (aka Margaret Sohn) is a 21 year old songwriter, artist and producer. The project was born in an NYU dorm room in January 2018 with the ’Talk Talk’ EP – while her friends were celebrating winter break with their families, Margaret Sohn, was behind locked doors, screaming into a mic through her guitar pedal board and out her amplifier. When she isn’t taking electrical engineering and computer science classes at NYU, Margaret, builds guitar pedals, designs voice-activated light displays, does post-production for film, works as a studio technician in New York and as a model. Margaret has played guitar for sixteen years and takes inspiration from the likes of St Vincent and Nels Cline.
The powerful, melodic, and intricate tracks of the New York group’s debut Talk Talk EP, which the band released in January of 2019; featured two singles (“Talk Talk” & “The Bride,” which was highlighted by Spotify as a standout track) and was hailed by NME as an “explosion of creativity” and “a truly awe-inspiring first work.” After the success of Talk Talk, the band went back into the studio to record more tracks, including “Running Slow” which was released by Cigarettes After Sex’s label Spanish Prayers Records.
In December 2020, she announced her Impostor EP, out February 5th 2021, and shared its lead single Dark Side Of The Party. This inventive track boasts fuzzed-out riffs and synth theatrics, and is an anthem for feeling out of place at a party full of surface-level conversations and ulterior motives. She sings, “I can’t tell hearts apart from spare parts/I try, I try, I try/Why can’t I?”
