#84: Sofie Fatouretchi Royer
Musician & Painter Sofie Royer on Filmmuseum Vienna, Piave Toothbrushes, Douglas Coupland, and more.
Cool people like cool things, which is why we asked cool person Sofie Fatouretchi Royer to come on Perfectly Imperfect & redistribute her good taste.
Vienna’s Sofie Fatouretchi Royer is an artist of many disciplines— not only does she study painting at the University of Applied Arts in Austria but she’s the former Creative Director of the Boiler Room, been a Resident DJ at NTS since 2013, and in the midst of the pandemic she dropped her self-produced debut album, Cult Survivor, on Stones Throw Records. Her debut combines the baroque vocal style of 70s songwriters with lo-fi hypnagogic pop to create a lush, melancholy, beautiful, and melodic sound that I really love. If you like what you hear, be sure to check out the music video for “Hollywood Walk of Fame“ (made with Eugene Kotlyarenko) and know that she’s working on her second studio album! Sofie has great taste and lucky for us, she’s here to talk about what she’s been into.
