Introducing Sofie Winterson


The latest tour de force to come out of Holland, Amsterdam-based singer-songwriter Sofie Winterson is the new voice to know. Ellie Craig tells us why.

Who: An ex-model, Dutch singer-songwriter Sofie Winterson has music in her blood. A solo singer, Winterson previously performed with her two sisters and brother as the band The Souldiers. Since deciding to persue their individual careers, Winterson has performed at SXSW and even been featured on a Braun advert; which is good going for someone who hasn’t even released their first album yet. Inspired by Joni Mitchell, Little Dragon and The XX, Winterson’s sound is a heady mix of folk meets electronica.

Tell me more: Next Monday sees Winterson release her latest single, River, via Magnetron Music. A dreamy, moody yet totally absorbing track, River starts off with heavy beats and breathy vocals which develop into soaring melodies. While River may not have such a catchy chorus, it seems inevitable it will be compared to Lykke Li’s I Follow Rivers. Just as evocative as her predecessor’s track, River looks like a dead cert to propel Winterson into the mainstream.

Wow. When can I buy her single? River will be released digitally by Magnetron Music on Monday 19th May.
