Miss Grit Shares “Lain (Phone Clone)”
Miss Grit, is the New York-based, Korean-American musician Margaret Sohn. Today, they present “Lain (Phone Clone),” the new single/video off their forthcoming self-produced debut album, Follow the Cyborg, available February 24th via Mute. On “Lain (Phone Clone),” Sohn balances vast pop elements, cinematic atmospherics and textures with blasts of squealing guitar. Inspired by Serial Experiments Lain, Yasuyuki Ueda’s anime about a girl whose online self attempts to drag her physical self away from reality, “Lain (Phone Clone)” presents a chilling moment when Sohn sings,“I don’t want to see everything anymore.” They comment, “I feel like the divide between my inner and outer self can grow so big sometimes that it feels like I’m being eclipsed by this big cringey monster. I wanted to write this to mock the monster and remind myself I’m not powerless against it.” “Lain (Phone Clone)” follows single “Like You.”
Follow the Cyborg, sees Miss Grit pursue the path of a non-human machine, as it moves from its helpless origin to awareness and liberation. At times gentle and sparse, at others volatile and explosive, Follow the Cyborg occupies a sonic world of electronic experimentation and stirring electric guitars. It was recorded mostly in solitude in Sohn’s home studio, with the exception of a few guest collaborators joining: Stella Mozgawa of Warpaint, Aron Kobayashi Ritch of Momma, and Pearla. Next month, Miss Grit will perform a pair of album release shows in New York and Los Angeles, with more dates to follow.
