The Viennese singer/songwriter Sofie Royer, fka
Sofie, returns with her second album Harlequin for
Stones Throw, the follow up to her well received
debut album Cult Survivor in 2020.

Harlequin journeys between Sofie’s adolescence and
adulthood, blending her nostalgia for early aughts
reality television and American mall punk subculture
with her passion for medieval performance, European
cabaret, and Vienna’s ballet and opera history.

For her new record, Sofie adopts the visual aesthetic
and gestures of the court jester, clown and cabaret
artist, from the album artwork through to her live

She previously released her compilation Sofie’s SOS
Tape in 2016, featuring artists including Mndsgn and
Charlotte dos Santos. Sofie was also an original
member of Boiler Room and an NTS Resident DJ.
