ARTIST OF THE WEEK | FIONA SOE PAING

Fiona Soe PHalf-Scottish, half-Burmese electronic producer and vocalist Fiona Soe Paing prides herself on creating utterly unique soundscapes. Influenced by artists such as Bjork and The Knife, Soe Paing is releasing a new album next month; actually made as a soundtrack to a fantastical live performance, ‘Alien Lullabies’ oozes dark, cinematic sounds that’ll intrigue and captivate.

Having written the album on the Waihake Island in New Zealand, at an off-grid Eco Village, Soe Paing was inspired by her beautifully surreal surroundings to create something intense and unusual.

With stand out tracks ‘Heartbeat’ and ‘Tower Of Babel’, ‘Alien Lullabies’ is a strangely beautiful offering, filled with Soe Paing’s powerful, distinctive vocals and cutting edge, haunting electronic sounds.

Having already received acclaim from the likes of Mary Ann Hobbes and Tom Robinson, and having wowed crowds across Scotland with her magical live performances, Soe Paing is sure to captivate listeners stretching far and wide with the unique offerings on her new album.

‘Alien Lullabies’ is out on 12th September via Colliderscope.
