Allie X is an artist who’s always done things differently. In a time when pop music feels generally over-produced and celebrities create false experiences of connection through closely curated Instagram profiles, she’s actively breaking down the wall between audience and performer. Yesterday, the singer released her latest song, “Purge,” a demo recorded in one take on her iPhone, which follows the premiere of her “Too Much To Dream” video.
Haunting and soulful, “Purge” is about “consuming so much of a person that it makes you sick. No matter how hard you try to make yourself clean again, you can’t force anything out.” Allie X wrote the song about a year ago, and now wants her fan’s opinion before she sits down to fully record and produce it in the studio. In fact, she’s asked her audience for help in making her entire forthcoming album, COLLXTION II
Listen to “Purge,” below, but hurry, because it’ll only be available for a week.
