EDITORS’ NOTES

Halsey’s debut, Badlands, is one of those listen-on-repeat albums whose cool colors and icy layers shape-shift with every play. A moody, electro-pop singer/songwriter in the vein of Lorde and Ellie Goulding, Halsey has a resounding voice with just a dusting of grit. Badlands feels so ripped from her personal journal that you instantly connect with her freedom and vulnerability. And when she speaks truth on “Castle” and “New Americana,” it’s like the graduation speech you’ve always wanted to hear.

Incredible

Halsey is truly the next big thing. Her indie pop voice really resonates. I know this album will be killer. Room 93 was just a peak at her outstanding talent, and hold me down truly showcases how brilliant this album will be. I'm so pumped for a studio version of Colors and to finally hear Young God. Ashley, I'm so proud of you and so grateful to call myself one of your fans!

NEW KIND OF MUSIC

Of course the album isn't out yet,
but if you're new to Halsey, get ready for the ride. Halsey's sound is dark and twisty and her lyrics are built on soul and honesty. I've never heard an artist pour her heart out into a song more than this wonderful woman. Her music is raw and real and if that's too much for you, then that's your loss. She is the New Americana, and when an artist has music as deep and pure as this, it's hard to ignore. Listen to the lyrics. Swim in the music. Absorb the message.
And prepare yourself to visit the BADLANDS.

hi my name is column ,

i don't even need to hear it to know it will be amazing

Halsey is unlike any other artist. Her music is solely based on her lyrics, sure she sings good and she rock any live show, but her art is based on the lyrics. And I love her for that.
