Miss Grit is a New York-based, Korean-American musician also known as Margaret Sohn (they/she). They have shared the new track “Nothing’s Wrong” from their forthcoming self-produced debut album, Follow the Cyborg, which is out February 24th, 2023 on Mute. For Follow the Cyborg, Miss Grit “pursues the path of a non-human machine, as it moves from its helpless origin to awareness and liberation.”
The new album focuses on electronic experimentation and was recorded mostly in solitude in Sohn’s home studio, with the exception of a few guest collaborators joining, such as Stella Mozgawa of Warpaint, Aron Kobayashi Ritch of Momma, and Pearla.
In Follow the Cyborg, Sohn refers to films like Her, Ex Machina, and Ghost in the Shell, plus essays by Jia Tolentino (from Trick Mirror: Reflections on Self-Delusion) and Donna Haraway’s A Cyborg Manifesto.
This month Miss Grit will perform a pair of album release shows in New York and Los Angeles. They are also slated to perform at SXSW in March, with further showcase details to come soon.
