    Poppy

    Considering there's a Billie Eilish thread I thought that some people might dig Poppy but I didn't see a thread on her. I only heard about her a few days ago and I'm not quite sure what to make of her.

    Not sure how I came across her the other day, and I'm surprised there's actually a thread here about it. It's weird; she goes from electro-pop to heavy guitar-driven pop (BabyMetal is the best comparison I can think of). I like it, and I'm not sure why. It's like metal Lady Gaga, I guess.

    I Disagree is a great album. I own the clear with red/black splatter variant on vinyl.

    Am I A Girl? also has some good songs.

    She's here this week in Charlotte but I'm not going haha.

    I love Poppy. Seeing her next Monday and I’m super excited. I’m also really excited to see what she does next now that her and Titanic Sinclair aren’t working together anymore

    Wait, so I've seen the name pop up a lot more frequently. Is this the same like...tween online YouTube girl from like 4 years ago?

    Looking forward to walking around and getting a Deftones shirt while she does her set.

    The music and persona are equally obnoxious to me.

    Listened to her new album yesterday after the Deftones tour rumors surfaced. I honestly don't know how I feel about it.

    Everyone saying they're unsure about Poppy, give it time. I wasn't sure if I was into her music or not the first time I heard it, but now I am absolutely in love with all of it. Once your brain can comprehend that merging of all the different genre's, it's such a fun fucking album.

    i am fucking OUT on this. Getting set times in advance for the Deftones tour this summer will be crucial. Congrats on her mgmt team lobbying hard enough/greasing enough palms to get her that slot though.

    Took me a few days to get through it a bit more, and that's how I feel too. If she takes this more towards noise-rock, I'll be hooked deeper. Latter songs on "I Disagree" remind me of Sleigh Bells, and they're awesome.

    I tried given her album a few spins after there was a big Kerang article on her (she was even on the cover) and...i just don't get it. And that's so weird because i ADORE Baby Metal, this sounds so alike...but not nearly as catchy or fun? I don't know if that's a fair criticism or not. Anyway i tried, i gave up...

    I don't like everything she's done, but her song "Time is Up" is flawless. I think she is actually really smart and her body of work is much deeper than many people are giving her credit for. She seems to be a performance artist and I think her performance is still unfolding.

    It's because it's a marketing shtick geared towards a younger crowd.

    It used to be. Her career trajectory was more or less planned and operated by Titanic Sinclaire, an abusive shit bag "producer" who Poppy was contractually obligated to. Their working relationship is now over, so she is about to start doing things her own way and has been in the process of dropping the android performance.

    And despite the fact that their working relationship is over now, Titanic Sinclaire still produced and directed all of the music videos for the new album, as well as writing and producing the album as well. But the "marketing shtick" is actively on it's way out of the door now.

    100% agree with ya, Richard. Her new album is honestly one of my favorite albums of the year so far. It's a fun fucking listen and honestly from front to back, one of my the most solid albums so far in 2020. Immensely cinematic ending towards the end that I wasn't expecting.

    Missing out on her show in February is disappointing me more and more now.
