No Fear Of Pop: Notes on the future of music.
No Fear Of Pop was founded in Berlin in late February 2010. It is a website about music of whatever genre and of whatever origin that seeks to transcend the habitual preconceptions about the "modern" in contemporary popular culture. The music written about will be pop in the broadest, most liberal sense of the term, rejecting accustomed dichotomies between the underground and the established - read mainstream. We believe that the music that you'll find on this site is not to be missed within the context of the pop tropes of today and tomorrow.
No Fear Of Pop is written in Berlin, with contributions from the UK, the US, Canada, and Australia. We like receiving submissions, but please send us your music to this address only:
Important: We accept physical copies as well - but if you intend to send physical stuff from outside the European Union or the European Free Trade Association, please notify us via email in advance, as otherwise we won’t be able to claim the package if it gets stuck in customs (which it frequently does). If the item is meant for somewhere else than the editorial office, please let us know.
