TRACE is a singer, songwriter, producer, performer and instrumentalist whose work is a self-technology, bound up in a bodily gendered experience. The Cologne-based artist authors her transgressive pop universe with soft falsettos, distorted guitars and deep guttural vocals embedded in electronic glitches. In her music and art, TRACE creates intimacy with emotional honesty, transmuting rage, grief and love into a unique vision of dream pop.

TRACE’s 2023 debut album, FUCKING AND DREAMING (October 2023) reveals her radical commitment to exploding preconceptions of how transness feels. Preceded in early 2023 by the searing queer heartbreak of YOU KNOCKED ON MY DOOR TO SEE THE STARS EP, FUCKING AND DREAMING is at once visceral and tender, exploring the transcendent universality of the trans femme perspective.

With just her computer, voice, guitar and effects, and informed as much by poetry as improvisation, TRACE intends to dissolve deliriously inside the music, liberated by the visceral scream of bodily, communal, humanistic hope.
