    Supposedly up and coming pop girl Allie X has finally released her new EP/project Super Sunset today (no idea why Monday but hey ho), and the final of 5 singles came out on Friday - it is absolutely blinding



    She's a funny one because some of her stuff (quite a lot of it) has been very good but not quite great and a bit too obviously riffing off other, better pop acts (think Charli, Chvrches and most obviously Lana). Last year's album CollXtion II had some real bangers but felt like an identity crisis.

    Girl of the Year is incredible however and a real turning point, and Little Things is also very good indeed. Here's the EP in full - CHECK IT OUT

    The songs released leading up to this have all been pretty good, Little Things is probably my pick: Death by a thousand cuts...

    Casanova is still my favourite thing she has done.

    Super Sunset is great, although we already had most of the tracks. It's a shame she's never broken through in the way so many of her contemporaries have, because I think she's a pretty great pop-star who clearly loves the craft of it, and has a great eye for the visual side of things.

    I like this version of Focus a lot:

    Yes she does a fair job on Last Christmas. At least it isn't another acoustic version.

    That Analog version of Focus is much better than the original.

    I do like that version of Science. No Analog Can't Stop Now though.
