“Sex and Love takes the listener on a sonic journey. The chord progression shifts and twists into numerous song changes. It might lift then drop but almost hypnotically, it’s always the same.”

– River Ray


SoF are Astrid (vocals) and River (guitars/production). Astrid’s name derives from her Nordic roots. Growing up in New Zealand and identifying as a witch from a young age, her mystical energy fuels the magic in SoF. River grew up watching guitar bands in the bars and clubs of Camden. He records and sculpts the SoF sound, weaving goth-rock guitar tones with melodic indie soundscapes.

The band’s influences include: The Pixies, NIN, The Killers and David Lynch.

Imagine Gwen Stefani fronting Nine Inch Nails, and you’d be half way there!
