Sophie's next single, “Lemonade”/“Hard”, was released in August 2014, with vocal contributions from PC Music artist GFOTY. Numbers released “Lemonade”/“Hard” as a 12" single.

Sophie grew up in Glasgow, Scotland. Sophie began her career in a band named Motherland (with bandmates Sabine Gottfried, Matthew Lutz-Kinoy, and Marcella Dvsi), and later collaborated with her bandmate Matthew Lutz-Kinoy on a series of performance works. In 2011, she scored the short film Dear Mr/Mrs by Dutch team Freudenthal/Verhagen. Sophie became involved with artists affiliated with the PC Music label after encountering Dux Kidz, a project between A. G. Cook and Danny L Harle. Sophie released her debut single “Nothing More to Say” in February 2013. Its follow-up, “Bipp”/“Elle”, was released on Numbers later that year. “Bipp” in particular received attention from music critics, topping XLR8R's year-end list and placing 17 on Pitchfork's. Pitchfork later ranked “Bipp” 56 on its list of the best tracks from 2010–2014. In mid 2014, Sophie collaborated with Japanese pop singer Kyary Pamyu Pamyu. Also in 2014, Sophie, in collaboration with A. G. Cook, produced the song “Hey QT” for pop singer QT. The project included an energy drink called the QT Energy Elixir. At the singer's request, “Hey QT” repeats the drink's name for product placement.
