New Gaburyu Featuring Eru Amaga: “Pop It Soda”

Less than a month after releasing a solid set of UTAU-centered electro-pop, Gaburyu and digi-singer Eru Amaga return with the sweet shuffler “Pop It Soda.” What’s most remarkable about it is how Gaburyu takes familiar elements of dance music sub-genres — Jersey club for one, and whatever you want to classify the thing most begrudgingly call “tropical house” — but finds a way to fit them into a song that doesn’t simply sound like an imitation of any. Rather, she weaves in high-energy passages and a hook anchored by syllables (which, to be fair, is something Vocaloid producers have been doing long before “Sorry”) around a number that can be downright lovesick in its verses. Listen above.
