Biography
"The track surges forward with a whistling hook over a slinky, swaggering guitar riff—and you want more” – Noisey
Ahead of the release of her highly anticipated debut full-length album COLLXTION II (out now via Twin Music), Allie X premiered her newest single “Paper Love” via Noisey. The track illustrates the “kind of love that is too fragile and violent to work but still feels smooth and sexy and sharp and you can't help going forward with it.”  The lush instrumentation and glittering synths wrapped around a rhythmic bassline and riffs reflect this idea sonically.

COLLXTION II explores identity, fragility and imperfection with a stripped back, minimal dark pop sound with a DIY edge encompassing delicate instrumentation, glossy pop and even slinky dancehall-inspired beats. The album continues to delve into the world of X and follows Allie X as her enigmatic persona is unveiled further through her lyrics, visuals and live performance. Allie X relocated to her hometown of Toronto, Canada to write much of the album, taking a break from her new home of LA to return to a simpler, though no less powerfully nuanced, style.

Allie X released her COLLXTION I EP in 2015 to critical acclaim, including praise from Pitchfork, The FADER, Nylon, and more; Stereogum proclaimed her “a new pop act worth paying attention to” while Elle declared her “pop’s next power player.” She counts Katy Perry as a fan and recently supported Troye Sivan on his North American tour after co-writing a number of songs on his debut album including hit single “Youth.” COLLXTION I introduced listeners to the world of X – a fantasy universe for introspection and self-expression – that garnered the singer a fervent fanbase that provides inspiration for each new song and grows with each release.

With the release of COLLXTION II Allie has reached new heights in both streaming and audience engagement with over 1.2 million monthly listeners and over 156,000 ‘fans’ on Spotify alone.
