The pop songwriter hits the road on a headlining fall tour to support new album Soft Power (Anti-), which trades her trademark electronic soundscapes for girl-group harmonies and piano-driven pop.

Matthew Houck ends a busy 2018 with a headlining North American tour in honor of new album C’est La Vie (Dead Oceans).
