More info from the same press release notes that, “poptropicaslutz! is an authentic emo-pop group for generation Z.  The ‘Hyper-Punk’ phenomenon you’ve never heard of just formed during quarantine, but already have hundreds of kids at their SOLD OUT shows waiting in line for merch, begging for photos with the band.”
