They Hate Change Go Hard on “1000 Horses”

Tampa Bay duo They Hate Change joined Jagjaguwar’s roster in August, unleashing one of the month’s best songs to celebrate their signing. Now Andre and Vonne are back with another new track, “1000 Horses,” their last drop of the year—their Jagjaguwar debut is coming in 2022.

The self-proclaimed “bedroom rap all-stars” come out swinging on “1000 Horses,” with Vonne unloading lines like “Take it personal when I say fuck y’all, I really mean it / The ball is in our court, it ain’t no sense in playin’ defense” before handing the mic off to Andre and fellow Tampanian emcee SARGE. They Hate Change’s production, known to filter footwork, jungle and other electronic styles through Tampa Jook music, shines on “1000 Horses,” particularly during SARGE’s verse, and when the duo let the beat ride off into the sunset, bass thumping and synths squelching.

They Hate Change describe “1000 Horses” as “An ‘Anti-Choker Chain’ PSA from the Bedroom Rap All-Stars. Featuring an Alien Transmission from the best MC with no album since D Double E.”

Faux Leather” director Xandra Robyn returned to helm the “1000 Horses” video, delivering an homage to the likes of Sonic Youth’s “Bull In The Heather” by combining in-studio performance footage with more evocative shots of the artists.
