Jess takes the stage with Jem-like moves, flashy fashions, and sings superchewydelicious songs that stick to the side of your cranium like a tasty wad of Hubba Bubba. Jeff robotically rocks behind a veritable Death Star of synthetic music-making devices, performing the odd kung fu kick, and when his machines allow for it, Saturday Night Fever hand gestures.

To Hyperbubble, guitars are retro and sequencers are the key to the future. Although their cyberpop contains more than techno's required share of bleeps and blips, songwriting is still a key element. The photogenic duo load their lyrical cannon with fast cars, fast food, 1-800 numbers and love songs to their synthesizers.

Hyperbubble recently completed a their fourth album, "Drastic Cinematic" for the Pure Pop For Now People Label. As the title suggests, the album will be drastically different from our previous release. While "Candy Apple Daydreams" was a Technicolor cartoon compact disc in Sensurround, "Drastic Cinematic" will be a Film Noir musical mystery movie on black vinyl, with songs, synthrock, sound effects, and voice actors from Europe. The first song on the album, "Vox Noir" will be constructed entirely of Jess and Jeff's multi-tracked vocals: Hundreds of Hyperbubbles...is the world ready?
