Pop savant Allie X recently unveiled her long-awaited fifth studio album, Girl With No Face. Filled with the rebellious spirit and experimental sonics of the early 80’s, these songs feel both nostalgic and completely unfamiliar. The 11-song project is Allie’s first self-produced album, and the transition to being the sole creative has resulted in something that sounds maniacally thrilling,  receiving universal critical acclaim in the UK from the likes of the Guardian,  DIY,  The Line Of Best Fit,  Clash,  Classic Pop and more.

Girl With No Face is an upbeat rollercoaster ride through the darkest parts of Allie’s mindscape, transcribed in her signature sardonic wit. Take the new single “Weird World,”  which comes accompanied by a self directed video which you can watch here
The record also features her previously released trilogy of tracks: “Girl With No Face,” “Black Eye,” and “Off With Her Tits,” with the latter gaining instant cult status within the queer community and garnering millions of streams in a matter of weeks since its release. Her vocal prowess is at its pinnacle – wailing, screaming, and at times whispering… but most of all, delightfully menacing.

“Dear reader, this may be just another album release for you. Another press release in the inbox.  For me, it is an almost impossible moment that was four years (or maybe a lifetime) in the making. This album was a choice to find out what happens when I lock myself in a room and try to make a record with no one else's help or influence.  An uncommon plight in the pop realm.  This was all at once a hedonistic pursuit (indulging my bottomless pit of love for the post-punk/new wave epoch in the UK) and the most immense creative challenge I’ve ever undertaken.  I’m proud of myself just for getting to this finish line,” shares Allie as she takes a *deep breath*.

X continues, “I’d like to thank the Girl With No Face, a presence I unintentionally summoned who went on to unleash her fury, vengeance, and sick sense of humor for the extent of this process.  Girl, now that this record is out, I’d like to request that you only possess me during the live show. At all other times, I’ll be chasing the silence.”

Over the past decade, Allie X has cemented herself in the pop pantheon as one of music’s sharpest, most insightful, and trendsetting artists, producers, and songwriters, having written hits with luminaries like Troye Sivan, Mitski, BTS, and many more. Now with the release of Girl With No Face, Allie continues to demonstrate a bold, singular visual and sonic palate and a command seemingly light years ahead of the competition.
