Last week, SOPHIE’s lippy paint splatter track Lemonade was one of our favorite songs of the week. Now the U.K. producer is back with that single’s b-side, Hard, which premiered on DIS Magazine’s Rinse FM podcast.
Hard is less maximalist than Lemonade, with tight bursts of glinting, sharp edges, rubber-shoe-squeaks and a weird, squawky air horn. The podcast features tracks from PC Music affiliate Danny L Harle and Berlin-based producer Soda Plains. The whole thing is worth a listen, but Hard begins around the 1:22:50 mark; listen below.
UPDATE: Hard is now available to stream on its own.
