Back with her fifth album release, Hybrid Rose collates nine exciting dance tracks, packed full with smart musical and cultural references.
The album is a techno-pop dream, with witty dance music to please a party. In some tracks, Rose shifts to write from other perspectives. In ‘I Want It All’ she sings as a fabulous Paris Hilton/Sharpay Evans blend. In ‘Fantasy’, she authors the track as an unreal digital girlfriend spambot, blurring lines of reality with a wicked sense of humour. A mermaid is the protagonist of ‘Star of the Sea’, with the more slow, peaceful track closing out the album. These tracks all utilise second-person lyrics too, encouraging a really close, and personal listen.
This constant shifting in the lens of authorship introduces interesting complexity and nuance between the tracks—you’re left curious about what the next song might explore.
Rose collaborates with a few different artists on this album too, including Jeivenchy, Jason Parker, and LOZ, and this community of voices becomes clear in the variety on the album. There’s so much fun to have with HyperKunt, and it’s an absolutely necessary add to your pre-drinks playlist.
A full album of certified, hyper-pop bops.
