Poppy

Poppy is one of the more interesting personalities to emerge over the last several years.  Playing with classic philisophical identity tropes alongside engaging YouTube influencer culture, she lands somewhere between human, brand, and total imaginary character.  Her new album, "Am I A Girl?", out today via Diplo's Mad Decent label, addresses all of this head on, as you can see from the title, through a winding Candyland pop landscape that drops you in a surprising final square.  For some time, Poppy has preached her love for Marilyn Manson and spoke of her collaberation with Grimes, but only now is it revealed the song is in fact a tribute for their shared love of the much maligned nu-metal genre.  It's a somewhat fascinating and bold choice, to see these two forward thinking personalities co-signing such a polarizing sound, but in the same breath thats what makes it so refreshing and contextually exciting.  Stream the album in full, here and check out the track for yourself, below.
