Watch Miss Grit perform "Watch The Cyborg" on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert

Miss Grit AKA Margaret Sohn has shared their contribution to The Late Show with Stephen Colbert’s LateShowMeMusic Series: a stunning performance of title track “Follow The Cyborg.” Directed by Miss Grit themself, the performance is complete with an seven-piece orchestral backing band: alongside Kacey Fassett (sax), Anthony Ferrara (sax), Cole Stone-Frisina (sax), Yaz Lancaster (violin), Connie Li (violin), Dorothy Carlos (cello), Jhainish Sinnatamby (synth), Miss Grit translates their mesmerizing recorded music into a live setting to thrilling affect.

Miss Grit will head to Texas in a couple of weeks to open for New Order in San Antonio and make their SXSW debut before supporting Bartees Strange throughout the UK and Nation of Language back in the US.

Across Follow the Cyborg, Miss Grit pursues the path of a non-human machine, as it moves from its helpless origin to awareness and liberation. Miss Grit’s impetus to conceive an album about the life of a cyborg stems from their own connection to this way of existing. As a mixed-race, non-binary artist, Sohn has always rejected the limits of identity thrust upon them by the outside world, in favor of embracing a more fluid and complex understanding of the self. In their exploration of the life of a cyborg, they subtly and overtly refer to films, including Her, Ex Machina, and Ghost in the Shell, as well as essays by Jia Tolentino (from Trick Mirror: Reflections on Self-Delusion) and Donna Haraway’s A Cyborg Manifesto.
