What The Pop?

PLAYLIST: What’s New On What The Pop?

Hands up if you know how many different classifications of pop music exist?

By Steve McSteveface

If you said 11 – well done. According to some sources you would be correct! According to others pop music is simply what’s ‘popular’. That’s fine but I need to categorize things ok!

What are they I hear you ask? Well, click here for a quick rundown together with definitions, some sample songs and a full Spotify playlist, then check out the latest songs that have just been added to the awesome playlist below

‘Chill’ – Andy North

Andy North is a Norwegian producer and DJ.

Born and raised in the wonderful city of Oslo, where diversity in music and culture has had an important impact on his career.

He was lucky and got into a growing DJ and EDM culture, where he shared his joy and passion with many like-minded friends.

‘When It Breaks’ – Quivers

Quivers make cathartic guitar pop that jangles and shimmers somewhere between 1980s Australia and 1990s America. It was started by Sam Nicholson in Hobart, Tasmania to keep singing after losing a brother in a free-diving accident. Having moved to Melbourne, the band is rounded-out by Bella Quinlan (bass), Holly Thomas (drums) and Michael Panton (lead guitar).

‘Changes’ – High Tropics

Dubbed as “infectious garage pop” by Rolling Stone magazine, High Tropics is the moniker of Queensland based songwriter Josh Stewart and his band. Formed as an outlet to house songs outside of the now defunct garage rock outfit The Ninjas, Stewart’s DIY home recordings quickly caught the attention of esteemed US label Roll Call records, who put out the project’s first two singles in 2017.

Coming off a busy year that saw the band break out internationally with singles “You Never Made it Easy” and “Wait for You” – which amassed over half a million combined streams online – in September 2018, Stewart and gang were selected to represent Australia in the Project Aloft Star Asia competition, held in conjunction with Universal Music Group and Aloft Star hotels in Seoul, South Korea. The performance marked the band’s first international show and onscreen appearance.

‘While We’re Still Young’ – Jack Droppers & The Best Intentions

Anthemic rock & roll from Grand Rapids, MI that provides sentiments of a party in a garage and the poetry of dunes on Michigan’s west coast. Harmonies, guitar solos, pounding drums, raspy vocals, catchy choruses, and plenty more.

‘All The Angels’ – Ake Noren

Swedish singer, songwriter and producer from Karlskoga. As he grew up in the sixties and seventies he fell in love with the great melodies of that time. Since the age of twelve he has been the leadsinger and songwriter of Flames, Bloomingdays, Wood, Denadas , Jet Airliner and Boogely Boys All in different genres. With his latest release, Baby Baby Baby, he is returning to the music he fell in love with as a kid. Hoping to someday come up with a song that could be misstaken for at song by The Beatles.
