ALLIE X - Girl With No Face Tour

at The Independent (9pm)
With over half a billion streams globally, Allie X has cemented herself in the pop pantheon as one of music's sharpest, most insightful, and trendsetting artists. She has headlined sold-out shows across North America, Latin America, and Europe and toured the world with Dua Lipa, Troye Sivan, Charli XCX, MARINA. Known for her bold sonic and visual style, Allie X has a hand in every aspect of her project from producing and writing her own music, directing her own videos, to hand picking her own fashion and glam teams and creative directing her album artwork. This singularity has attracted much attention from the fashion world (Iris Van Herpen, Alexander McQueen, Olivier Theyskens) as well as the LGBTQ+ community where she is a celebrated and outspoken ally, spearheading charity events and guest hosting Drag Race. Allie X's fourth album Girl With No Face, due for release in February 2024, is a daring excavation of her identity. Inspired by the technology and hedonism of the early 80's new wave scene, the album's analog leaning songs are a series of stark contradictions - retro in feel but ultra-modern in subject matter, pointed, unpredictable yet danceable, approachable while delightfully menacing.

~~~~~~~~

Are you ready for a new pop icon who appears fully formed, perfectly realised, with no rough edges and a cast-in-stone persona? Well keep looking. The bad news -- and this is the best bad news you'll hear for some time -- is that pop's most extraordinary new talent is far from complete, with the momentum of Allie X's futuristic, shape-shifting persona matched only by the propulsive thrust of her captivating music.

Since arriving online in 2014, the Toronto-born, LA-based singer songwriter's radio-ready electronic pop and bold visual style caused instant waves internationally. Even in the hyperbole-strewn landscape of contemporary pop criticism her plaudits stand out as uncommonly positive. Time magazine called 'Catch' a "perfect pop debut single" while Pitchfork likened it to "a shot of adrenaline straight to the chest" and Dazed deemed its creator "a small pop miracle". Allie's main visual at this point -- a maniacal spinning GIF -- was one of the reasons Interview magazine praised Allie X for establishing "her own language for music and art -- reinventing the way the music industry operates". Katy Perry, meanwhile, breezily declared 'Catch' her "summer jam", and tweeted it to over 50m followers. Allie's drip-fed releases picked up further coverage from The Fader, Vice, Popjustice and V Magazine.
