Soko and Lime: The Acid-Sweet Indie Singer Talks Singing, Acting, and Kissing Asia Argento

 
 

AE: Do you find anything different about America? Do you like it better?
Soko:
I mean I live here, so I must like something about it.

AE: In New York or California?
Soko:
In L.A.

AE: Do you like all that Hollywood stuff?
Soko:
I’m not a part of all that Hollywood stuff.

AE: [laughs]
Soko:
No, I live in the east, surrounded by musicians, and fun people. I’m not a part of this materialistic, stupid, superficial world. I hope not!

AE: Well, sometimes it’s hard to get away from it…
Soko:
No! It’s not… I have cool people around me. Cool in a good way, not in a cool way. Cool in an amazing, awesome, mindful caring way – that are very inspiring and that I play music with.

AE: So I write for a gay magazine —
Soko:
Oh, great! Awesome! I love the gays! I love you guys! I’m one of you!

AE: Yea, so you said that a guy totally broke your heart.
Soko:
No, that’s true, but that’s wrong. I’ve liked girls since I was fucking born.

AE: Did that force you into a more lesbian phase?
Soko:
No, no, no, I mean I’ve always been dating girls. For the last year, I’ve been dating girls but it doesn’t mean I won’t date guys again. It just means, I like the ladies better.

AE: [Laughs]
Soko:
They’re just soft. They’re fucking beautiful. Their pussies smell good, unlike dicks. I don’t know.

AE: Do dicks smell bad?
Soko:
Dicks smell bad. Those dicks, not gay dicks! Gays know how to take care of themselves. They know how to take care of “down there” better.

AE: [laughs] That’s Hilarious.
Soko:
Sorry, that was disgusting. Don’t put this in the interview.

AE: I have to!
Soko:
C’mon.
