I started to learn about Halsey nearly a week ago. She is an American singer-songwriter whose music is in trend now. Having read some of her interviews, I can tell that she has her own philosophy and style. The sound of her music is unique and different from other Electropop artists that I’ve already listened to. The lyrics of Halsey’s songs are deep and meaningful.
The idea of her debut studio album is quite uncommon and creative. Halsey mentioned that the name “Badlands” came to her out of nowhere. She later said that the album is set in the future (50 to 100 years from now) where our society becomes dystopian.
Her main target audience is definitely young adults. The proof for that can be found in many of her interviews, as well as in her songs. Once the singer-songwriter even mentioned that she mostly writes about sadness, love and sex.
After listening to “Badlands,” my personal top five favourite Halsey songs are:
When I decided to listen to Electropop music I honestly wasn’t expecting that it could be that thought-provoking. The word I used when I first wrote about this genre was “playful”. Now, when the genre starts to reveal itself to me, I’m constantly thinking about how many fascinating singers are still out there for us to explore.
