The voice of the Viennese Anja Plaschg is one of the most hauting that can be found in modern pop music. Under her moniker Soap&Skin she has already sung about live, love and suffering on “Lovetune For Vacuum” in 2009 and “Narrow” in 2012. With her first album in six years “From Gas to Solid / you are my friend” she’s chasing once more the answers to deeper and meaningful questions und wraps them into orchestral sounds and yet sometimes they’re very minimalistic, because sometimes there is nothing else than her voice and a piano required. These new songs were all written, arranged and produced in her apartment in Vienna – an intimate setting and self-determined way of working that shows what an exceptional artist and producer she is. At her live shows these songs manage to surpass themselves, as Soap&Skin as she manages to share the darker twists to her inner self.
In April we will now have the chance to see her live once again.
