100 Gecs - 10,000 gecs

A thrilling ride from start to finish.

100 Gecs - 10,000 gecs
In the eight years they’ve been creating music together, Dylan Brady and Laura Les’ 100 gecs has become almost synonymous with the word hyperpop; the mere mention of their name conjuring thoughts of pitched-up autotuned lyrics, chaotic production glitches and insanely catchy pop bangers. When debut album ‘1000 gecs’ crash-landed back in May 2019, it catapulted the duo from online buzz to mainstream consciousness, racking up millions of streams, with the tree on the record’s cover even becoming a go-to fan hot-spot. Although not all of the reactions were entirely positive (Laura told us back in 2020 of an interaction with a gig onlooker: “They held Dylan down and were like, ‘Come here, come here. You fucking SUCK!’”), it’s hard to deny the impact gecs have had on pop, the pair having teamed up with some of the genre’s biggest leftfield names (AG Cook, Dorian Electra, Charli XCX) for 2020’s remix album ‘1000 gecs and The Tree Of Clues’. Nearly three years on, Dylan and Laura are set to cement their place at the forefront of pop’s boundary-pushers.
