LA-based artists Tyler Mann & nicopop. have joined forces to release a hypnotic, guitar-driven new single titled “Lover Lover,” available on all streaming platforms now.
“Lover Lover” marks the second collaborative single from Tyler Mann and nicopop., following up on their danceable anthem “Start Again,” which dropped last year. Together, the duo have also worked behind the scenes on songs for Evalyn, Naomi Wild, and Kyan Palmer, just to name a few.
“Lover Lover” is a more stripped back sound than what has come to be expected from Tyler Mann and nicopop., but the infectious guitar lines and silky melodies will instantly get stuck in your head. On the origins of the track, nicopop. explains that the single “is really a testament to our working relationship.” He continues, “a couple years back we got together to write a track for a pretty prominent dance DJ, but they ended up passing on the song which turned out to be a blessing in disguise. There was something about ‘Lover Lover’ that really resonated with us and our experience… the message of this song is really about perseverance and in a way our process of making it is a great example of that. If somethings worth doing, it’s worth doing right.”
About Tyler Mann
Southern-born and West Coast raised, Tyler Mann is making his mark on the indie scene by blending new wave indie pop with a signature, western flare.

As a proud USC Trojan, Tyler Mann spent the early 2010s studying music alongside fellow indie tastemakers like Alex Benjamin, Muna, and RKCB. And now, he is fully emerging himself in LA’s music scene.

Following in the footsteps of artists like BØRNS, Miguel, and Khalid, Tyler Mann finds himself center stage, ready to serve his sad-boy-at-the-party lyrics, refreshingly left of center hooks, and desert, street kid aesthetic.
Drawing inspiration from the visual over stimulation of the early 2000s, electronic artist, animator, and producer nicopop. is the answer to two decades of pop culture obsession. nicopop.’s effervescent pop sound is fun, danceable, addictive, and flawlessly produced. It’s old meets new; it’s y2k meets Gen Z.
Growing up in the heyday of Britney Spears and inspired by today’s Poppy, Kim Petras, and Lil Miquela, nicopop. has fused a born-on-the-Internet aesthetic with an exciting sound. He bridges the gap between self-awareness and self-obsession, redefining pop music and pop culture for the millennial generation with each new release, new visual, and new social media post.
Since the unveiling of the nicopop. project this past summer, the praise has already been flying in from key tastemakers such as Buzzfeed and Billboard, as well as a multitude of HypeM blogs. With more original music on the way and writing credits on songs with Naomi Wild, Kyan Palmer and Evalyn, there is no doubt that nicopop. will soon be the quintessential sound of pop.
