"Ugh," my dad used to grunt when I switched on Radio 1 .

It's a criticism that's been levelled at synthpop for years.

Taryn Southern, a YouTube star and content creator, has just released a song she wrote with the help of artificial intelligence.

Southern wrote the lyrics and melody, but the backing track was built by her laptop, after she punched in a number of settings for the song's mood, tempo and instrumentation.

"My new collaborator is not human," she grins.

"What chord structures are most common, that sort of thing."
