Technically, I Should Love Terror Jr’s Latest Electropop Record, But Something Just Ain’t Right

Generally-speaking, I’m a bit of a nihilistic individual, finding solace in the dark, disturbingly-macabre soundscapes of Metal music & craving anything with an earth-shatteringly epic sense of scale that feels otherworldly as it challenges my classically-trained music theory skills when I search for the power behind this & other like-minded genres. Even so, I have an intense soft-spot for some good ol’ Electropop music every once in a while, enjoying a bit of girly jubilance layered over hard-hitting electronic beats; Artists like QT, Sophie, GFOTY & Charli XCX bring a smile to my face with their delightfully charming feminine aesthetics, especially when their tracks lean in more of the Metric or Frou Frou vein of Indie Dance & Electronica. I was ecstatic when these sort of voices started bleeding over into the mainstream Synth Pop scene around 2013, giving me a healthy dosage of ethereal vocals with bold attitudes that were simultaneously fun to dance to, but the new-age focus on Alternative R&B aesthetics really ruined the whole experience for me as everyone tried to be as hard & ‘streetwise’ as possible, needlessly injecting all manner of foul language into their narratives for shock appeal alongside the painfully gentrified personalities these typically-Caucasian girls were throwing into every track; I’m looking at you, Halsey & Melanie Martinez – With this in mind, Terror Jr’s Unfortunately, Terror Jr should be right up my alley, capturing much of the same spark from the Electropop acts I do enjoy, but it strikes a balance right on the edge of the fence between cutesy & overall-manufactured that just puts a sour taste in my mouth, watering-down what could’ve been a fun new record for me to blast in 2019.
