Singer, songwriter and producer Sophie Meiers began her career by collaborating with musicians such as Nohidea and Huck over Soundcloud. While taking a break from theses collaborative endeavours, Meiers has focused on developing a new production alias GUTTERGIRL and working on a debut album set to release in 2020. Meiers’ work encompasses many genres, including bedroom pop to lofi hip-hop and r&b. Meiers' latest single, "better for you" is a testament to Meiers' ability to blend genres in order to create a memorable track.
“better for you” is an intimate pop song with tangible emotion carried through Meris’ ethereal vocal. A looping bass line and simple programmed drums provide structure and allow for soft synths and guitars to build throughout the track. Heartfelt lyrics contemplate the consequences of walking away from a fraught relationship, and soft harmonies highlight the infectious lead vocal melody. "better for you" is a track with the unique ability to spur both a dance party or a good cry and offers an exciting glimpse into Meiers' upcoming album.
