it’s funny what you become known for, and to whom, and all their perspectives that come into play. i’ve had many synth enthusiasts say i’m too poppy and many pop listeners say i’m too experimental. though being on a forum like lines and hearing someone “wish it was pop-ier”, that’s a first for me haha.
i’ve been bouncing around genres my whole life and quite inconsistent about how i promote myself. i wonder if the most poppy material is just what has naturally been able to engage the most people.
