Biography

Soffy O. had to take some time off. At the start of the new millennium—through the huge success of the singles Missy Queen´s Gonna Die and Day Of Mine—Soffy Larsson Ocklind´s life had just gotten too fast. She had adopted the name Soffy O. to work as the singer/songwriter front-woman for the techno/electro act Tok Tok. Thats when the rollercoaster ride started: German Dance Award for best newcomer and critic´s choice track, invitations to play clubs all over the world , international recognition. In 2003 Britains Stylus Mag wrote of her voice and her appearance: A younger teutonic Kim Gordon, who sings like an indifferent angel of death with a cyborg implant. The same article compared her penetrating power to Eurythmics singer Annie Lennox, and her single with Tok Tok to Sweat Dreams. Those who know both acts will see the parallels. Its all about attitude. And the will to make pop music.

But after the rush came the hangover. Soffy O was thrown from the rollercoaster and landed back on the ground. Fast forward to 2006. A lot of time has passed. Shes taken a lot of contemplative walks. Shes looked for new directions. In the end, though, Soffy O. has decided to remain Soffy O. and to keep rubbing against pop. Soffy´s debut as a solo artist The Beauty Of It is a mélange of funk, disco, R´n´B, 70s soul, rock´n´roll and 60s girl group sounds. Which is mainly due in no small measure to Soffy´s singing - endearing and demanding at the same time. Soul music. Frisky and cool. Plaintive, aggressive, then entreating again.
