GOM / JUNE

ONE OF MY FAVORITE ARTISTS TO EMERGE FROM THE HYPERPOP SCENE WITHIN THE LAST CALENDER YEAR, IS NONE OTHER THAN GOM. HIS LATEST OFFERING “JUNE” FOLLOWS UP HIS SINGLE (NUMBER 02) WITH FELLOW HYPERPOP WARRIORS POPTROPICALSLUTZ!, WHICH RECEIVED EDITORIAL SUPPORT FROM SPOTIFY (HYPERPOP & FRESH FINDS).

“JUNE” IS A WHOLE DIFFERENT JOURNEY FROM GOM THOUGH. I DON’T KNOW IF IT’S MY PERSONAL TASTE (BECAUSE I’M A SENSITIVE AND OFTENTIMES DEPRESSED INDIVIDUAL), HOWEVER THE MUSIC THAT’S BEEN RELEASED THESE LAST TWO YEARS SINCE THE GREAT RESET HAS SEEMINGLY INTENSIFIED TOWARDS APATHY, DEPRESSION, AND ANGER. NOT TO DISCOUNT ANY OF THE BEAUTIFUL SONGWRITING OR COMPOSITION FROM GOM BECAUSE THESE QUALITIES ARE WHAT MAKE THE SONG SHINE.

WE FORGET THAT IT’S OKAY NOT TO FEEL OKAY. WE HAVE SUN AND MOON. WATER AND FIRE. YIN AND YANG. SOMETIMES THAT PESKY YANG TAKES OVER AND VOILA.. THE END RESULT IS AN AMBIVALENT AND HYPERPOP-INFUSED BANGER MADE FROM ONE OF THE PRE-EMINENT FIGURES OF A STILL VERY NASCENT AND EXCITING GENRE. I JUST HOPE, ALBEIT SELFISHLY, THAT OUR HUMBLE NARRATOR FINDS SOME HAPPINESS SOON! MUCH LOVE, MR. GOM.
