The U.S Artist and Producer Pushes The Boundaries on a New EP
Hyperpop is a term that splits opinion. Evolving from the common ancestor of dance music and pop, it’s a genre that’s being adapted by the next generation of bedroom producers, putting together beats with cheap software and lo-fi equipment, creating a unique genre and sound that’s beloved by the likes of Charli XCX, Arca, SOPHIE and plenty more.
One of the most exciting artists pushing the boundaries of the genre is Godly The Ruler. The Nigerian-native now living in the U.S has just dropped the unique and powerful ‘Dog Days’ – building from influences as far as punk, indie, electronica and rave.
Despite only officially releasing a handful of singles, Godly the Ruler is growing consistently amassing over 500k streams with over 26,000 monthly listeners on Spotify alone. Their music has been supported by the likes of Exclaim!, Tone Madison and The Bozho as well as featuring on Spotify’s ‘Gaming Lounge’, ‘Fresh Finds’ and ‘Tirade’ Editorial playlists.
Speaking on the EP, Godly described that
QUOTE “This project is essentially me looking into the mirror and examining my life, accepting my faults and acknowledging my relationships with others and the world at large. The music reflects the same craziness and volatility that comes with the human experience.”
