DIGITAL ZERO by Bad Bubble
What makes 'Digital Zero' such a standout example of conceptual synthpop is the way Bad Bubble uses its synthetic instrumentation and vocals to create a plot that is both futuristic and deeply emotional.
Bad Bubble's signature sound is cosmic ambient with thick-sounding vocals in autotune processing.
It's a quality indie with dream pop and synth elements that draw their strength from its roots in the 80's. In the song 'Digital Zero' Bad Bubble gives new life to familiar musical genres and demonstrates how amazing, fabulous and deep fully synthetic vocals can sound. The cold, metallic tones of the synthesizer and the icy detachment of the vocals combine to create a sense of otherworldly beauty that is both eerie and captivating. At the end of the song, the key breaks, twisting into a black minor spiral.
Overall, 'Digital Zero' is a powerful example of how electronic synthpop can be used to explore complex and personal emotions even if they are associated with sadness. I love how Bad Bubble found the sweet spot in a semi-lo-fi, semi-synth, semi-indie sound. The track hits your nervous system with hopelessness, tenderness and abstract patterns. 'Digital Zero' is a melancholic and emotional piece of conceptual indie music that is a must listen. Give it a try and see what all the hype is about Bad Bubble's music?
