Popular Music: The Podcast

Feb 11, 2019

WE JUST WANT TO GO BACK - BACK TO 1999. This week, Omar and Analise delve into the retro-inspired Charli XCX and Troye Sivan collaboration, all with help from guest, retro synthpop artist, Lauren Kop aka Mini Bear! Lauren talks about her early love for rave music and how it spawned her work as a pop artist (as well as Charli’s!). Also, Omar and Analise have a music theory-related psychic connection to Charli. Seriously. It happens.




No guilt. Only pleasure. Popular Music is a pop music podcast hosted by Omar Najam and Analise Nelson. New episodes every Monday.
