Sophia Eris may be playing games with her most recent single, “In Need,” but she certainly isn’t messing around when it comes to the music.
Doubling as a DJ for the Minneapolis Hip-Hop radio station Go 95.3, the GRRRL PRTY crew rep manifests her inspirations from Erykah Badu to Musiq Soulchild and Santigold, rolling them together into an expansive Electro-Soul and Hip-Hop synthesis.
Fastened tightly over a bouncing Boom Bap based, exploratory Funk fusion from producer Prophis, Sophia rubs her burning vocals into the track like a deep massage and realizes she has no clue what to do with her similarly searing emotions for another.
Take a listen.
