What Is Anti-Pop?

Miles Opton

Anti-pop is a development of pop music that diverts from the traditional uncomplicated, energetic, good-vibed style that has historically defined pop as a whole. Spearheaded by Joji and his millions of Youtube followers (from when he was “Filthy Frank”) in 2017, the genre was first introduced as a mixture of slowbeat lofi, melancholic vocals, and ominous electronic elements. Today, the genre has snowballed into a larger movement with artists like 347aidan, Aries, Dominic Fike, and slowthai expanding its boundaries. Inevitably, more sonic ingredients have entered the anti-pop sphere, however, the core of the genre still maintains through predominantly negative feelings and atmospheres. Spotify’s Anti Pop playlist is a great place to start exploring the trending genre.
