Rubber Release Vulnerable Yet Catchy New Single Synth Pop Idol

Philly, PA – Rubber is a writing-producing duo made up of singer-lyricist, Andrew Loper (he/they) and producer/multi-instrumentalist, John Della Franco (he/him) formed during their time studying at Temple University in 2018. The duo creates an intricately balanced soundscape combining their R&B, Funk, Hip-Hop, Jazz and Soul influences like Frank Ocean, Thundercat, Patrice Rushen, and Amy Winehouse, while maintaining that hot-pink, dynamic feeling of pop music, anthemic and universal. The duo shines the brightest in a live setting where their combination of bass-driven grooves and vocal acrobatics has grabbed and held the attention of audiences up and down the East Coast.

Rubber are excited to share their vulnerable yet catchy new single, “Synth Pop Idol”. Here’s what they had to say about it:


“We’re bringing you a stripped back, bass driven track with a more uplifting feel this time around. The complexity of Andrew’s vocal performance is given space to shine over the simplicity of the sparkling instrumental” -John (he/him)


‘Synth Pop Idol’ is a song about identity/ The lyrics deal directly with the pressures I face as the front-person of the band to be skinny, bubbly, consumable. This song is a statement. I am an imperfect narrator; a jester, a musician, an artist, but in no way an idol” -Andrew (he/they)
