In a world where the online version of a person feels easier to connect to, Rochester-bred quartet KOPPS flips the scenario in their new video for Virtual Reality. Check out the video below and more from KOPPS at!

Never ones to take themselves too seriously, the Rochester-bred quartet would tell you that their sound is an equal and strong mix of Britney Spears and KoЯn, and they wouldn’t be entirely wrong. Anchored by Patricia Patrón’s sultry vocals, the band has a knack for pop sensibility that they immediately flip on its head, evoking a titillating mix of electro, pop and nu metal.  Or as they like to call it: CrazySexyCreepy. With a flair for the dramatic, KOPPS visuals dabble into the creepy, twisted and often bizarre vibe but always with a wry sense of humor. That peculiar sense of humor may stem from growing up with labelmates and fellow Rochester-based band, Joywave. Patrón and KOPPS bassist Kyle O went to high school with Joywave frontman, Daniel Armbruster, who lent vocals to the band’s latest single, “HOTT (ft. Joywave)” as well as prior collaborations. 

Two other tracks of note, “Baby I’m Dead Inside has a slinky, electro-R&B feel to it, as Patrón admits that true love is overrated, and the previously released “Hott (feat. Joywave)” is an infectious tune that walks a fine line between pop, dance, and rock, while the video creates what could be the next viral dance sensation. But no matter what song you’re listening to, two things are certain: KOPPS is gonna make you laugh…and make you sweat.
