LET ME BE YOUR TASTE TEST.
There’s a new heiress to the Gotham pop throne on the scene, and she goes by the name of Halsey. Hailing from our concrete backyard of New York City, Halsey (neé Ashley Frangipane) dropped her debut single “Ghost” earlier this year, and while it took a minute to make its way to us, the wait was decidedly worth it. It’s iridescent nylon pop at its most haunting, as masochistic CHVRCHES synths lay the foundation for the 19 year-old’s soul-searing vocals to take center stage, like a teen dream Ellie Goulding with all the adolescent swagger of Lorde. Get familiar below, and keep an eye out for her making her way to a Neon Gold stage near you soon.
