Today Miss Grit, moniker of Korean-American musician Margaret Sohn, announces her Impostor EP, out February 5th, and presents its lead single Dark Side Of The Party.
Miss Grit 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.
A new Beggars Music signing in a joint venture with Big Deal, Sohn makes relatable songs that masterfully dissect the feeling of self-doubt. Her songs can drastically shift from delicate to explosive as they show her technical prowess as a guitarist and melodist, and her evocative lyricism. On the heels of her Talk Talk EP, a “truly awe-inspiring first work” (NME), Impostor is a six-song collection that’s more cathartic, resolute, and fully documents the array of talents she brings as a multi-instrumentalist, singer, and producer.
Out today, the inventive lead single Dark Side Of The Party 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?”
