Monika Enterprise presents Far Away Is Right Around the Corner, the debut album by Cologne artist Sonae. Containing ten tracks written between 2012 and 2014, the record deals with reflections about friendship, growing up, and everyday life full of hope. Sonae's music is wide, flowery, and raw, from the very quiet ambient pieces to tiny club electronica moments, always embedded in an electronic soundscape. Sonae put out her first release in August 2012: The two-track EP Cologne on ambient and electronica label a Strangely Isolated Place. Her remix of "Saint" by Markus Guentner appeared in 2013, with two compilation appearances following later that year: "Entmutigt" on Sillage Intemporel's Elles and "Song of Hate and Anger" on Guentner's for Substrata, the latter appearance alongside such artists as Ismael Pinkler, Gustavo Lamas, and Rafael Anton Irisarri. 2013 was also the year of Sonae's live debut at the Perspectives Festival in Berlin, where she performed as part of an immense lineup alongside the likes of Ada, Electric Indigo, Mimicof, Islaja, and many more. In 2014 Sonae appeared at Art's Birthday Party at Södra Teatern in Stockholm, t.a.t. Cologne, and the Ambientmusikzimmer at Weltkunstzimmer Düsseldorf. In August of 2014 she released a remix for ambient artist 36 and in December the Shirley M. EP, a split release on comfortzone with Austrian musician Chra. In addition to her work as a musician, Sonae is an active member of female: pressure, an international network of female artists in electronic music, organizers of the female: pressure electronic concert series in Cologne and regular events in Berlin. Sonae's ambient creations inhabit a subtle space within the musical cosmos; one where the listener can go to experience a kind of sonic weightlessness - just float off and let the sound waves wash over you.
