Los Angeles-based artist TRACE has been one of our favourite alt-pop up-and-comers for a while and a few weeks ago she delivered something special once again with her brand new single 'Hard Times'. The single comes after sharing her sophomore EP Like Hell in October last year.

On her atmospheric track, TRACE combines her tender vocals with heavy and reflective words, such as, "I overthink / And it feels like we're lining up for the trauma / Hook line and sink Found ourselves in a place that feels much darker." Like always, she bares it all with 'Hard Times' and her words will resonate with anyone who has ever found themselves overcome with their own internal thoughts. Another highlight is the way the track moves between lush electronic beats to delicate yet vibrant guitar strumming, resulting in a beautiful and seamless transition.
