Miss Grit

Mute Records has unveiled its latest signing, Miss Grit – aka musician Margaret Sohn – and released her first single under the deal. Her arrival at the label follows two self-released EPs – most recently last year’s ‘Imposter’.

Incorporating the rock and pop influences of her earlier work, the new single comes across like an icy 80s new wave anthem with euphoric guitar work lifting it upwards to fill all available space.

“I had the character of ‘Ex Machina’ in mind as the voice I was singing from”, she says of the new single. “Her arc in the movie felt really beautiful to me, and I wanted to reach the same ending as her in this song”.

Of her new label, she adds: “Mute is one of the labels I put on a pedestal in my mind, so the fact I was even on their radar was really flattering. And then to think they believed in my music enough to want to work together made me so happy”.

You can catch Miss Grit live in London at Amazing Grace on 1 Nov. Watch the video for ‘Like You’ here:
