Sophie Hunger "Molecules
With what verve Sophie Hunger has peppered her timeless, warm sound into the mothballs! For ten years and five albums, folk and jazz shook hands in her songs, she, the Swiss citizen of the world, the independent, pranced around as melancholy as light-footed where abysses never seemed too far away. And now, in the summer of 2018 to be exact, with her sixth album, "Molecules", she does smoothly conjure up synthesizers and beats - and we realize more clearly than ever how dark and dangerous her music is. One day Sophie Hunger will be counted among the most important artists of her generation, and that's a mistake.
Because she already is.
