This week’s listening room roundup includes romantic sets from our “Love Lockdown” weekend, indie folk goodness and spooky electronic vibes. Take a look at the artists who visited the Sofar listening room and stay tuned for more shows happening every day.

Bia Ferreira & Doralyce

Rio de Janeiro

This duo uses their voice to educate, raise awareness about the demands of the anti-racism social movement in Brazil, and over the weekend, they were the first couple to perform in the listening room Love Lockdown. They’re smiley, feel-good set (with a touch of social activism) did our hearts some good.

M w S

Pisa

Like Oh Wonder and Sylvan Esso? You’re going to love the dreamy landscapes that song-writing duo M w S brought to the stage in this stripped-down, oh-so-good listening room set.

The Bergamot

Pheonix

An indie folk-rock band boasting sweet melodies and resonating rhythms that are sure to win you over. Their listening room set was full of catchy songs that had us craving a long road trip with the windows down and the music up.

Samar Mehdi

Bangalore

This percussive-fingerstyle songwriter and performer made his way into all of our summer playlists after watching his listening room show. Tune in for haunting beats and a voice that just doesn’t stop.

Raina Sokolov-Gonzalez

Delivering a moving set full of heart, each lyric from this unique, jazzy singer-songwriter landed with a striking authenticity. Raina found a way to be thought-provoking and create a sense of calm at the same time. It was such an engaging performance, her captivating voice and obvious passion winning us over.
