Get to know Halsey in the article below.


Halsey is the stage name of Ashley Nicolette Frangipane, a 20-year-old New Jersey native who has cultivated a dedicated following with just one EP to her name, last year’s Room 93. With a shock of blue hair and vocal control beyond her years, Halsey arrived with just five songs and a buzzed-about live show. Since then she became the most tweeted-about artist at SXSW, toured with Imagine Dragons, and was the subject of a fascinating New York Times profile that explored her identity as a “biracial, bisexual and bipolar” artist. To boot, Halsey’s debut album, Badlands‘ latest single, “New Americana”, recently premiered on Apple Music’s Beats 1 with an enthusiastic endorsement from Zane Lowe: “There’s a new icon there,” he said, possibly making it so by fiat.



Badlands opens with “Castle”, an unhurried track with a trip-hop backbone that serves as a meditation on Halsey’s growing fame. “Sick of all these people talking, sick of all this noise,” she sings, ready to reject celebrity like an industry pro from the get-go. “And there’s an old man sitting on the throne that’s saying that I probably shouldn’t be so mean,” she sings, taking a jab at the patriarchy; it’s one of the occasional moments on Badlands where Halsey’s personality emerges and the knives come out. But sonically, “Castle” is dull; a misguided plainchant interlude threatens to derail the track early on and the soupy production never quite congeals.
