Biografi

Soap&Skin är artistnamnet för den österrikiska musikern Anja Plaschg, född 5 april 1990 i delstaten Steiermark. Hon växte upp i en liten by vid namn Gnas, belägen i sydostra Steiermark där hon bodde med sina föräldrar på en gård. Hon har spelat piano sedan hon var sex år gammal och började som 14-åring även spela fiol. Ungefär samtidigt började hon intressera sig för elektronisk musik. Hon studerade grafisk design vid högskolan i Graz, men hoppade av när hon var 16 år gammal och flyttade kort därefter till Wien. Där studerade hon konst vid Academy of Fine Arts, men hoppade ännu en gång av, denna gången som 18-åring.

Hennes debutalbum Lovetune for Vacuum gavs ut den 13 april 2009 och producerades av Plaschg helt på egen hand. Albumet hamnade på femte plats på Österrikes albumlista i tio veckor[1] och mötte bra kritik i bland annat NME och Sputnikmusic.

Soap&Skins musik inrymmer spår från flera olika genrer, bland annat darkwave och electronica. Hon använder piano som dominerande instrument i de flesta av hennes låtar, med vilket hon skapar en mörk stämning insvepta av starka melodier. Bland hennes influenser har hon nämnt artister och grupper som Cat Power, Björk, Nico, Aphex Twin och Xiu Xiu.

Soap&Skin är för närvarande ute på turné och är aktuell med singlarna Spiracle och Mr. Gaunt Pt 1000.

    Nothing like Anja's music, but I still think it's something someone here can enjoy.

    You're welcome cellarstella. I was eager to share her with Soap&Skin fans as she's the only artist i've heard that was able to touch me in a somewhat similar way to how Anja does.. However, it looks as though we won't have long to wait possibly. Anja obviously has something brewing. "Tybalt" is beautiful in all of it's simplicity. By the end of it my face was almost screwed up (a regular occurrence with Anja's music), it was just so touching. The last few closing chords almost killed me. Also have a look at the other videos uploaded on that channel from that concert. Her performance of "Cry Wolf" was the best ever. My words wouldn't do it justice.. but her howls at the end, it's like something from another planet. She really is extraordinary, so sincere.

    Just a heads up to you guys about an artist i've just discovered that I think you may appreciate. It's incredibly hard to find anyone alive who's music is able to touch me in a similar way that Anja's does. Lisa Morgenstern comes very close though. Listen to her songs "Lieber Tod", "My Room" and the instrumental piece "Under Water". The music is exceptional, achingly beautiful stuff. Her voice is powerful and dark, perhaps not as otherworldly in tone as Anja's but there are still moments of dissonance. On some songs her vocals can come across as slightly theatrical (dare I say inflected) but it's something I was easily able to look past as the music overwhelmed me. I think she's a great artist to check out whilst we try to patiently wait for Anja to release something new. Lisa's debut album "Amphibian" is well worth a try for any Soap&Skin fan.

    Wait, what? Her vocal is such amazing. It's so mysterious and dark. There is not many artists like her.

    I love instrumentals but I don't really like her vocals... But instrumentals are really really good.

    Does she look like Jessica Alba for real or is that just me?

    Грустно, дождливо, неспокойно, эмоционально, депрессивно, мрачно и красиво одновременно, загадочно, неопределенные эмоции... [2]

    'The day this very special soul releases new music is the only day I long for. Discovering her changed everything for me a few years ago. All I was looking for was sincerity and I found it, the most achingly beautiful songs. No one else alive i've heard comes close to Anja.' -- yes, yes, yes, yes!
