Books are often like autonomous entities, they have their own universe and their own laws, even if they “live” among many people.
How it sounds
As if the students of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry got drunk with a Christmas eggnog and formed a band.
At the same time, they began to tell stories about what happened to Harry Potter and his friends.
It is essentially a Novelty song * with the exclusive theme of the books by J. K. Rowling and the characters of the Young Wizard series.
It can be characterized from alternative rock to a pop-punk sound with the specific theme.
Why listen to it
Because we love Harry Potter and his adventures.
Because we NOT like Harry Potter and his adventures?
Where do we meet it
USA and specifically in Massachusetts
When did it start
The early 2000s
Who are the pioneers
The pop-punk Switchblade Kittens released a song called “Ode to Harry” in 2006, starring Ginny Weasley.
Also, Harry and the Potters actually created the genre.
But also Draco and the Malfoys, who are in conflict with the previous ones.
You have to listen
Days of glory
At comic book festivals, at some Cosplayer parties, that’s all the glory.
And they always have beautiful girls in their appearances.
Their DIY approach strictly limits them to a specific audience, as well as their subject matter. It’s just a hobby, rather than a musical genre.
What is it confused with
With pop-punk and anything from Geek Rock.
How do you describe it to an irrelevant
Some “weenies” sing about Harry Potter and sometimes even dress like his heroes.
