Known for crafting catchy electronic-based music that manages to mesh joyous bubblegum pop with a punk grit, Lowell returned earlier this summer with a darker tone on “High Enough.” It retained a danceable groove, but the Canadian artist was clearly exploring a heavier direction than we’d heard throughout most of her 2014 debut LP, We Loved Her Dearly.

Now, with the second single from her Part 1: PARIS YK EP (out August 26), she sprinkles a little bit more of that upbeat pop sound into a stew of lurching electronics and growling bass. It’s a satisfying, mature successor to more airy songs like “88” and “Cloud 69” that grabbed our attention two summers ago. Listen below.
