Harper's Bazaar (Singapore) - - THE NEWS -

If there were a hash­tag to de­scribe Sokko’s elec­tro-pop discog­ra­phy, it’d be #good­vibesonly. But look past the feel-good fac­tor of her tunes, and you’ll dis­cover a dark ma­tu­rity that be­lies her young age.

Sokko is one of the most streamed Sin­ga­porean artists on Spo­tify and has col­lab­o­rated with five-time DJ Awards win­ner, Lu­cian. Global phe­nomenons the likes of The Chainsmok­ers and Grimes have even in­cluded the vi­sor-wear­ing per­former in In­sta­gram shout-outs; the lat­ter be­ing one of Sokko’s big­gest cre­ative in­flu­ences.
