Splice Sounds has launched the fourth title in the Beyond Hyperpop series of sample packs.
The GFOTY sample pack features a collection of vocals, drums, guitar, and more by British pop singer Polly-Louisa Salmon, known by her stage name GFOTY, an abbreviation of Girlfriend of the Year.
From 2014-2018 she has released music through the PC Music label. She made her independent debut in 2018 with the release of her single Boy Next Door. Much of her best-known work has been in the form of mini-mixes.
Polly-Louisa doesn’t like labeling her music by genre or style. It’s an amalgamation of her tastes and listening habits. She told us, “My music is quite literally based on a real algorithm of whatever I’m into at the time and what’s going on in my head. I listen to mostly dad-style rock like Squeeze, Supertramp, and Madness, and also 2005 era British indie music with a dose of ABBA, Queen, and Nirvana, but when I go out, I’ll listen to Scooter or Pitbull while I get ready. I think that element mixed with the embarrassing mixture of music I listen to daily must somehow create my own little version of hyperpop which you’d hear in my music.”
Splice subscribers can download the sample pack and all individual sounds, while new users can sign up for a 14-day free trial to try Splice.
