music by sonae is wide, flowery and raw –
from the very quiet to tiny club moments, always embedded in an electronic soundscape
sonae’s debut-album ‘far away is right around the corner’ came out 2015 on gudrun gut’s label monika enterprise. „die reuelos wundervollste flimmerelektrik der saison“ („the unrepentant most wonderful flimmerelectric of the season“), states german groove magazine. it was nominated for a via! vut indie award 2015 in the category ‘best album’.
after many years beeing a dj in the fields of electronic music sonae started writing her own music by the end of 2011. half a year later her first ep ‘cologne’ was released on ambient and electronica label a strangely isolated place. remixes for british ambient musician 36, markus guentner or cio d’or besides eps and compilation contributions followed.
