Popcypher leads the way with minimalist, organic musicianship, amid pop rhythms and basic lyrical repeats, throughout a revealing and honest Chicago.
Chicago is equal parts poetic and personal, following a single melodic loop and emerging backed by synthetic lines that descend consistently.
The genre-free arrangement is very original, basic yet striking, and provides a sound experience that is both familiar and unique.

Chicago is one track of his debut album, Rising. It is a clear favorite with its nostalgic pop sound, innovative take, and catchy melody. If this song is any indication of what the album has to offer, we are in for a real treat.
Things begin and end with a smooth, delicate presentation in Chicago, and in between these points, we receive a realistic thread of energy and openness – connecting with listeners for sensitivity and ability unified as things wash over.
Vintage tones and freshness come through as Popcypher offers originality that is all his own in Chicago.
This is an artist to watch, and we can’t wait to see what he does next.
