By now, you should be pretty familiar with the hard to ignore hyperpop scene if you've been in touch with the new wave of gen z music. Two of the genre's budding stars, aldn and midwxst combine forces for a melodic journey where they live "happy ever after," the title of their new addicting single.
Coming off of a mere viral campaign from previous single "glitter" (currently over 2 million streams on Spotify), aldn continues to showcase his songwriting abilities and convincing vocal tone, all over his electrifying, self-produced beats. "happy ever after," feels like it belongs as the outro of a Mario soundtrack, as catchy as a nursery rhyme, intertwining new wave distorted sound design, with pretty instrumentation – and a chorus that sounds like a dozen Toad's singing beautifully in harmony. midwxst, who brings a more hip-hop influence to his hyperpop sound, graces the second verse, showing a more melodic singing side to his talents, matching aldn's pace and energy perfectly.
I understand hyperpop isn't for everyone, but if you're new to the sound and are looking for something that is digestible and less in-your-face, then "happy ever after," is an ideal gateway into the scene. With shows back in action, you'll be bale to catch aldn and midwxst both perform live later this summer/fall. For now, enjoy "happy every after" below.
