LA-based artist by way of Toronto, Allie X has gone from being a relatively unknown artist to a potential rising star; all within a very short period of time.
She landed on earth from planet X (I just made that up) back in February with the electropop tune, “Catch” a sugary jam that immediately captured the attention of bloggers and a few well known artist. But it only took a quick tweet from Katy Perry: “Currently I’m obsessed with this song CATCH by Allie X: SPRING JAM!” to instantly gain the mystery-artist a substantial amount of followers. Allie X, followed “Catch” with an even catchier tune, “Prime” a synth-laden song with a more aggressive sound that deliciously verges on 80s New-Wave. Now, the alienesque songstress is back with “Bitch” an inescapable musical concoction that sounds like Lana Del Rey meets Cyrstal Castles meets 80’s band Art of Noise. And, although she might not admit it, there’s an homage to Ice Cube’s “It Was a Good Day” on those icy-cool, synth twinkles in the intro and throughout the song—which quite frankly makes her cooler than your average pop starlet. “Bitch” is simply, phenomenal.
