Hyper pop is peculiar; there was something parasitic about how off-put yet fascinated it was with the way hyper pop songs were stuck in to give into the abrasiveness. This is not the case for every artist; however, sometimes their art can have a deeper meaning. Sometimes, it can just be an excuse to have a headbanger with irregular beats. This makes it all the more exciting because there isn’t any right or wrong way to enjoy hyper pop. You can appreciate all facets of it. Hyper pop is the way of the future, allowing artists of every background to produce music that can both enchant and disgust your passion for music. Everyone gives it a try because sooner than later, there’s going to be a lot more 100 Gec’s in your life. A single song could include genre elements as diverse as R&B, indie-pop, hip-hop, rap, bubblegum pop, and EDM. The majority of these musicians are members or vocal allies of the + community and purvey sexually explicit lyrics. Most hyper pop music is likely considered too abrasive and niche for popular consumption, but that doesn’t stop Gen-Z from spreading the music like wildfire in the digital world hyper pop’s relationship to virality. Only in today’s meme-obsessed era could a song as brazenly inane as “dancing on the sidewalk lights flicker (musical)” go viral without also spawning a tsunami of scorn. Similar tracks have invaded mainstream TikTok and racked up big numbers on YouTube and Spotify too. People call the sound a score of cores from glitchcore to digicore to robloxcore. Glitchcore currently leads the pack. There is already a Spotify playlist dedicated to the genre. “The Sound of Glitchcore” although who knows what term will ultimately settle. One thing’s certain though the mini-genre has skyrocketed from a fledgling scene into a sizable movement in just the past year. Even designating it as a genre might be a bit of a stretch for such a quicksilver sound. There’s a DIY feel, much like the old Sound Cloud rap, as if these rappers produce from their bedrooms (which they do). Hyper pop has always been a reflection of racism and classism, and there’s always been a movement alongside. Others on the internet have pointed to the genre’s distinct queerness as a potential factor in its popularity. Its surrealism and artificiality serve as an ideal space for transgender and non-binary artists to express themselves outside of heteronormative and CIS normative gender conventions. The majority of hyper pop musicians don’t belong to the label. The label has influenced other musicians to take on some of Hyper pop and thematic elements. But hyper pop is more than an exciting new musical genre; it’s a movement about pop music. Hyper pop is the way of the future, allowing artists of every background to produce music that can both enchant and disgust your passion for music. Everyone give it a try because sooner than later, there’s going to be a lot more 100 Gec’s in your life.
