Streaming Now - SOPHIE's "VYZEE"
Wed, 25 Nov 2015 14:07:29
We all know Thanksgiving is tomorrow, but looming close, too close for many, is the shadow Black Friday, the day, it's been said (according to the memes), where only in America do we viciously trample each other for material goods exactly one day after being thankful for what we already have.
Keep this in mind as you consider the new series of singles from SOPHIE, an emerging electronic act the Guardian has dubbed an "enigmatic male producer posing as a female 80s R&B singer." The artist's new single "VYZEE," streaming now on Soundcloud and Youtube, is not only a party banger that sounds suspiciously like something from the mind of dance queen Uffie, but it's also, somehow, a silicon product that looks like a...hamster tunnel.
The single and silicon item is part of four new songs and products set for a Black Friday release. Along with "VYZEE," those tracks are "MSMSMSM," "L.O.V.E.," and "JUST LIKE WE NEVER SAID GOODBYE." The singles join the already-released "BIPP," "ELLE," "LEMONADE," and "HARD" as an updated song "bundle." The products, well, you should just go to the site to check 'em out; it's an interesting concept, one that aligns art and music with the consumer mayhem and frenzy of greed that is Black Friday.
All of those tracks will be collected into the album Product, out Friday, November 27, as well.
