New album, HYPERREAL, from Denver based Ecuadorian pop artist Neoma out today [FFO: Charli XCX, Rosalía, Dua Lipa]
Today, the pop artist Neoma – the artistic vehicle of Ecuadorian singer-songwriter-producer Carla Huiracocha – has released her new album HYPERREAL, the follow-up (and sequel) to Neoma’s 2019 LP, Real. Now based in Denver, CO, Neoma, originally from Cuenca, Ecuador, Neoma has honed her unique blend of bilingual vocals, sharp pop songwriting, and more experimental electronic flourishes on this new album, which was influenced by the likes of Kate Bush, SOPHIE, ARCA, Donna Summer and SARAMALACARA. Speaking on the upcoming album, Huiracocha writes: “HYPERREAL is the sequel to Real. It is more intense, very hyperpop influenced. The title is inspired by Lorde’s Buzzcut season hyperreal lyric: ‘Make-believe it’s hyperreal.’ Virtual relationships feel very hyper realistic to me. Hyperreal is the dual digital-physical reality of maintaining relationships over the phone. Some things can be real, but not enough.”
