Adorable blue-haired Halsey just released her much-anticipated album “Badlands” at the end of August.
Halsey sounds like a mixture between Lorde, Ellie Goulding, Hayley Kiyoko, and Twenty One Pilots. “Badlands” is filled with countless, catchy electro-pop songs that will have you listening again and again. The album reminds me of long night rides, and is definitely a CD I would invest in for my car.
I don’t actually have a favorite off the album yet, because I like them all so much. Each song sounds very similar, but has its own unique meaning and beat, while still fitting in with the album as a whole. I couldn’t imagine Badlands without any one of these songs, which is hard to say about some albums (there’s almost always one or two songs you don’t connect with).
This album is all I’ve been listening to for the past day (and I will probably be listening to it tomorrow and the next day and the next day too). I had never heard of Halsey before this past week, but she’s definitely created a name for herself in music. If you like bouncy pop music that has darker lyrics (think Twenty One Pilots, Tove Lo, or even Lana Del Rey) with a blue-haired female narrative who sounds like Lorde’s long lost cousin, I highly suggest you take an hour out of your day and listen to Badlands.
