North now releases her latest single Hard, earning the contagiously catchy single rave reviews from local and international music press alike. With an add to Spotify's prestigious New Music Friday playlists in the USA and Canada, and clocking in at over 146k streams and climbing, North's track has also caught the attention of US 80's electro pop master Memoryy, who has lent his practiced remix touch to Hard's hook laden ear worm to create his own infectious, synth-filled groove - further propelling So Below's sound to a number 12 debut on the Hype Machine remix charts.
