Welcome to our new Space Discovery!
And welcome to the future. Sophie Said’s evocative and dynamic hyperpop single 2099 hurls us into a very distant future, despite also being infused with a nostalgic synthwave sound. This tune is infectious from the very first note, with the hyperspeed effect created by the unremitting rhythm and its genre-bending experimental and energetic nature, which blends past and present together, creating the idea of a future where everything runs quick and smooth and all can be seen in technicolour.
The rhythmic chaos of the track mirrors the hustle and bustle of a world racing toward 2099, where boundaries blur and sonic landscapes intertwine. Sophie’s dynamic vocals serve as the driving force, propelling the song’s energy to dizzying heights, and her prowess is clear even through the robotic voice effect applied here and there.
The marriage of synthwave’s nostalgic allure with hyperpop’s experimental fervor creates a sonic dichotomy that mirrors the simultaneous tension and harmony of a world on the cusp of transformation. Stepping into the realm of futurism, the artist crafts a sonic journey that defies conventions, embracing the unexpected and the very essence of musical evolution. Feeling misplaced in the present time, Sophie takes us with her to a dimension in which we find ourselves in the embrace of a chrome-coloured future, where everything’s fluid and a world of possibilities lies. Through an electro-frenzy of sound, 2099 challenges preconceptions of genre, leading listeners down a rabbit hole of soundscapes that twist, turn, and ultimately converge into a harmonious prediction of the rhythm of tomorrow.
Sophie Said‘s fearless approach to sonic exploration shines in this boundary-pushing anthem, inviting us to dive headfirst into a sonic future where the only constant is change, and we can’t wait to hear more of this sci-fi series of songs that the singer and vocal coach from New York has been working on.
