SUO is the solo project of Brooklyn-based musician and artist Saara Untracht-Oakner (of BOYTOY). The songs are a collection of various modes and a spectrum of emotions with a strong focus on song-writing and melody.
Drawing inspiration from a range of artists including David Byrne, Prince, Lou Reed, The Supremes, Brian Eno, Grace Jones and Patti Smith, SUO creates something reminiscent and familiar, while simultaneously catchy and fresh. Her stage presence blurs the lines of feminine and masculine energy in a post-gender eruption of power, something beyond the constructs of social normality. This project is an amalgamation of more than 15 years of songwriting, 10 years of national and international touring and an insatiable craving for growth, exploration and creation.
