Dutch Electropop Star on the Rise

Sometimes indie and pop aren't just a label affiliation or a place on the charts: they are states of mind. Sofie Winterson's electronic techniques and post-genre affections have made that clear. From her debut LP Wires through later works like 2016's single "Kids," her music is a smart synthesis of well-known influences and ideas lurking fathoms under the mainstream's surface. As a singer-songwriter, she builds around the strength of her voice. It's often disguised as fragility or vulnerability, but it also drives home the pulse of a beat as sure as any dance pop star.
