Stream Allie X's synth-poptastic new album.
She added: "It's a study of how much of me is actually me, and how much is informed by pain and trauma. Because throughout my life, I feel like I've lost and gained pieces of myself out of necessity to protect or defend myself. The album studies how much of who you are is pure—how much of it was there when you were born and how much is shaped by pain. Each song on the album can be thought of as a piece of me. Some songs are memories, some are dreams and some are my interpretation of reality."
Sonically, Allie X is exploring minimalism. “I always love a lot of synthesizers and was trying to use different parts of my voice—not necessarily just belting out all the time. In the past I’ve produced by layering and layering until there can be no more layering, like if you listen to "Catch," it’s like a river of sounds you could swim through. With this album, I was trying to do the opposite and get to only the most important sounds and eliminate everything else.”
