Formidable artist SOUKOU makes her 2023 debut with new single ‘Bloodline,’ out now.
Oozing with a soul-tinged splendour, SOUKOU’s powerfully emotive vocals are at the forefront throughout. Subtle synth-infused soundscapes slide in effortlessly underneath R&B-infused sensibilities, creating something truly mesmerising as a result. Talking about the single, SOUKOU explains, “this song is about generative trauma. Its about my grandparent, my parents and me. Its about healing and letting go of the stuff that doesn’t belong to you; about freeing yourself”.
Bloodline is the first single to be taken from SOUKOU’s forthcoming EP, due for release in Spring 2023. The songs on the EP all revolve around one theme; family. Questioning at what extent we can detach ourselves from our socialisation; how love becomes hate without communication and asks whether the next generation can be freer if we manage to detach ourselves from our traumas today.
