Pop artist Neoma, the artistic vehicle of Ecuadorian singer-songwriter-producer Carla Huiracocha, has released her new album Hyperreal, the follow-up (and sequel) to 2019 LP, Real. Now based in Denver, CO, Neoma is originally from Cuenca, Ecuador, and approaches her work with a blend of bilingual vocals, Pop, and more experimental Electronic elements.

Speaking of the new album, Huiracocha writes:

HYPERREAL is the sequel to Real. It is more intense, very hyperpop influenced. The title is inspired by Lorde’s Buzzcut season hyperreal lyric: ‘Make-believe it’s hyperreal.’ Virtual relationships feel very hyper realistic to me. Hyperreal is the dual digital-physical reality of maintaining relationships over the phone. Some things can be real, but not enough.
