The ever-surprising SOPHIE has returned with her second single of the year. “Ponyboy” is an exercise in the skull-crushing, abrasive electronic work with which she has spent her career refining, and the accompanying visual is every bit as arresting. Arresting in the sense of grabbing hold of your head and shaking it like a rag doll. Watch it above.
It’s been a productive year for SOPHIE, in addition to “Ponyboy,” she is still fresh from the release of “It’s Okay to Cry,” a dramatic return single that puts the previously-enigmatic producer right in front of the camera. She also contributed two excellent tracks to Vince Staples‘ sophomore effort Big Fish Theory, released to wide acclaim over the summer.
Revisit “It’s Okay to Cry” below, and stay tuned for what seems like an imminent SOPHIE full-length.
