Here’s a dude that really understands the future of music.  

From the TuneCore blog:

Alex Day, a 23 year-old musician from Essex, England is focused on releasing music that puts listeners in a good mood. And it seems to be working. He has over 500,000 YouTube subscribers, over 500,000 songs sold, almost 100 million youtube views, and was the subject of two recent Forbes articles. Read on as the pop artist talks about how his YouTube channel has seen such rapid growth, why he just released several singles at once, and how he feels about being called “the future of music.”

Without using any “conventional” genre words, describe your sound.
Bouncy happy fun-loving pop music to dance and feel good to :)

Congratulations on those back to back articles in Forbes! How does it feel to be called “the future of music?”
