“At 16, I admired Fitzgerald because he went to Princeton. At 20, I admired him because he dropped out. I think you can see a little bit of yourself in anybody as long as you try hard enough.”

|Billboard:||When you are in the process of creating, do you see colors? If so, what colors did you see while making "LEMONADE" and "HARD"? (Seeing color as a result of sensory stimulation is a neurological phenomenon known as Synesthesia).|
|SOPHIE:||A lot more so I think about physics and materials. "LEMONADE" is made out of bubbling, fizzing, popping and "HARD" is made from metal and latex -- they are sort of sculptures in this way. I synthesize all sounds except for vocals using raw waveforms and different synthesis methods as opposed to using samples. This means considering the physical properties of materials and how those inform the acoustic properties. For instance -- why does a bubble have an ascending pitch when popped and why does metal clang when struck and what is this clanging sound in terms of pitch and timbre over time? How do I synthesize this? Perhaps after learning about these things it might be possible to create entirely new materials through synthesis.|
oh god YES!!!!
very wonderful punk band with possibly the best name ever

This is the first (?) release on my pal James’ brand spankin new DIY label Near Mint! If you like the heartstrings-tugging happysad feels of Topshelf Records and Double Double Whammy, you’ll probably dig it.
