Hyperpop

Against Deception | November 8, 2020
Christian Electronic Music

Hyperpop Music and the name hyper pop describes the sound well. It includes some pre-PC Music artists with a
similar philosophy and post-PC Music artists pushing the genre further by naming the genre. We
open it up to other non-PC-Music-affiliated artists who have similar philosophies and new ideas.
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. The artists
associated with the scene sound vastly different from each other. The current front-runner
name is contentious in itself. Because not everyone uses the same glitches-out vocal aesthetic.
Some only pitch their voices up or mess around with strange beats at its most basic level of
definition. This is a sound equal parts rap, pop, and electronic, usually with short, high-pitched
vocals deliciously drenched in Auto-Tune Beats vary from calm to crazy. The instrumentals often
mirror the mania with sugary synths and spasms of sprightly chords on the tracks with stuttering
vocals. Hyperpop Music  sprees of ad-libs fill in the moments between lines. 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
cisnormative gender conventions. In the world of hyper pop, the artist’s image and sound are
entirely unconstrained, easing the burden of dysmorphia for queer artists on the internet have
pointed to the genre’s distinct queerness as a potential factor in its popularity. 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. Hyperpop Music 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. The majority of hyper pop musicians don’t belong to the label. The label has influenced
other musicians to take on PC music’s sonic and thematic elements. Still, Hyperpop is more than
an exciting new musical genre. It’s a movement about what pop music should be, both
stylistically and culturally.
