They Hate Change are almost ready to roll out their debut studio LP, Finally, New, in full. The record drops May 13, and today, the Tampa rap/production duo of Dre and Vonne have shared its fourth and final single. "Some Days I Hate My Voice" follows previous album offerings "1000 Horses," "From the Floor," and "Blatant Localism," adding an exclamation point to their forthcoming project's pre-release credentials.
The new song pairs a growling sub bass with a skittish synth, laying the track out for an ode to androgyny from Vonne that pays tribute to Toronto trans performance pioneer Jackie Shane, X-Ray Specs' frontwoman Poly Styrene, and 100 Gecs' Laura Les.
"I’ve written a bunch of sad lyrics about gender identity in the past, mostly while being sad about gender identity," Vonne explains. "Sad songs are played out though, so I approached this joint charged up and went at it from a different, equally honest perspective, that represents the experience of having a gender identity or expression that’s constantly in flux (in a positive way!).”
