Bronclair’s “Fatal”, featuring the very talented Slitz, is the newest example of his dazzling and dark hyperpop sound that has propelled him into the success he has found since becoming a popular force in the scene in 2020. Introduced by a lone haunting time-warped synth lead and Bronclair’s sparse vocal harmonies, “Fatal” shifts into a more uptempo, distorted track when the extremely abrasive drums and clipped 808 drop with an extremely catchy hook from the lead artist. Bronclair brings a melodic verse and bridge that begin braggadocious but quickly turn nostalgic, with overtones of melancholy and heartbreak developing into the bridge before the hook and main beat section come in once more.
Slitz—the featured artist—also comes with a very compelling verse, steady cadence carrying her words clearly over the effects laden on them throughout. Her contribution is short but effective, each bar syncopated with the beat with just enough variation to catch and keep your attention. “Fatal” is a very well-structured and well-produced song, with a pounding, distorted beat headed by a gliding synth lead that will give you chills. Both artists bring the full scope of their talents to the table on this track, and while more Slitz would have been welcome, felt present enough to make an individual impact—something that is extremely valuable in the very saturated hyperpop scene. We’re excited to see what Bronclair does next, and anxiously await his next release.
