You’ve just imagined nearly all of Allie X’s music. That is not to say all her music sounds the same though. Her library of strange songs each have their own magical, and sometimes eerie vibe that compliments her eccentric style.
The Canadian artist has a good chance of turning into a pop icon due to her unique sound and style. Her music utilizes elements of 80s synth (very much like the Stranger Things soundtrack), and her videos are often visually jolting with elements of surrealism. She’s an artist that makes you think, using aesthetic imagery as well as faintly dark lyrics.
Her Spotify playlist “COLLXTION II ɄNSOLVED” allows her followers to listen to her newest demos and finished songs. Based on their feedback through social media, she is picking the songs for her next album. This creates a sense of community between her and her fanbase.

Alessia Cara is Back with New Single, “Growing Pains”: Listen
This decision speaks to her creative, visionary approach in her music, but also her strong relationship with those that follow her. The singer is helping to create a new era in pop, one in which albums are a creative experiment for both the artist and listener. Allie X’s CollXtion II is set to come out in the spring of 2017. Based on the five singles already released on to her playlist this year, the album will be one to watch out for.
Hi, my name is Aine Geraghty and I study Writing for Film and Television at Emerson College in Boston. I like to spend my time scheming, watching 80s horror movies, and wildly overreacting to everything. If you ever see Freddie Prinze Jr. on the street, tell him I'm a big fan.
