“Bubblegum” was once a commonly used derogatory term. Particularly, during the late 1960s and early 1970s, “bubblegum music” was a term used to describe fluffy Pop songs designed for teenagers and pre-teens who churned through a succession of favorite songs. Cynics assert that Bubblegum Pop would have lived a much longer life, if it hadn’t been assassinated by Disco.
Mystery Jets released a song that is not Bubblegum Pop, but is entitled “Bubblegum.” The song most comfortably fits in the Pop Rock genre, with the Rock elements carrying the track during much of “Bubblegum.”
Mystery Jets is based in London. The members are Kapil Trivedi (drums), William Rees (guitar, vocals), Blaine Harrison (vocals, guitar, keyboards), Henry Harrison (keyboards, guitar), Jack Flanagan (bass) and Matt Park (pedal steel).
