BEST NEW SONGS: SOPHIE - JUST LIKE WE NEVER SAID GOODBYE
Earlier this month we told you about Product, the collection of singles and first official release for SOPHIE, the godchild of PC Music. As the release date nears, the London-based artist is sharing more of the songs, with the terrific “Just Like We Never Said Goodbye” being the latest offering.
“Just Like We Never Said Goodbye” is, you guessed it, a song about reuniting with an ex. The song works nicely contradicting the reflections on a splintered relationship with the hyperkinetic electropop SOPHIE has built his name on. A female vocal that sounds like a 1940’s lounge singer on smack ruminates over a beat that threatens chaos but never goes fully off the rails. The song has a layer of tension that hasn’t been present before in the young lad’s work.
This track is another step forward in what is shaping up to be a very big run for one of our favorite producers.
SOPHIE - JUST LIKE WE NEVER SAID GOODBYE
Product drops on November 27th. SOPHIE is playing a pair of dates in California, SF and LA, along with a show in Italy before the record’s release. Expect a slew of dates to follow, along with every single festival in 2016.
