Switched On Pop | Look What You Made Us Do

A podcast breaking down the music of pop hits.

Pop music surrounds us, but how often do we really listen to what we’re hearing? Switched on Pop is the podcast that pulls back the curtain on pop music. Each episode, join musicologist Nate Sloan and songwriter Charlie Harding as they reveal the secret formulas that make pop songs so infectious. By figuring out how pop hits work their magic, you’ll fall in love with songs you didn’t even know you liked.

Four years into Switched On Pop, Charlie and Nate finally reveal what was behind the entire series. We may have not been totally honest with you from the beginning.

Back in 2014 we were more pop skeptics than fanatics. The genre was, to some degree, the sugar that made the musical analysis medicine go down. And then something happened. Just as people started to listen to the show, we too began to open our ears. Now,…

The Danish artist has made a big impression on the pop scene since releasing debut single ‘Remedy’ in 2017. With her brand of up-front, no punches pulled pop, she’s getting the attention of all the right people (us included!) and building a loyal fan base for herself.

Following her second single, ‘Tied Up’ (which has 1.9M streams on Spotify to date), Ea Kaya has released new single ‘Don’t Complicate It’ which is as Ea Kaya as it comes – “I say it like it is, when you don’t say s**t”.

And, as she tells us in our interview, there’s much more to come!
