Sophie‘s “Lemonade” single is out now via Numbers, and with it comes this B-side. The U.K. electronic producer favors clean lines but also candy-crushed hyperactivity, hooky chipmunk vocals but also the type of bass exploration that would likely benefit from club speakers. That carries over onto “Hard,” which you can hear below, but if the palette from last year’s “Bipp” is becoming familiar, the way this spotlight-shunning, Kyary Pamyu Pamyu-collaborating beat maker uses those day-glo bleeps and twinkly chimes continues to be wild and vibrant.
