Together, both Allie X and VÉRITÉ have continued to garner critical acclaim and break new ground as independent artists through unique collaborations, personal interaction with their devoted and growing fanbases and their own stunning, complex pop productions.
Allie X unleashed her masterful debut album COLLXTION II this spring via Twin Music, uniting raw moments of dark alt-pop splendor, heartfelt lyrics of loneliness and longing and glossy pop beats that found both critical acclaim and a devoted fanbase on the dancefloor. Her stunning, critically acclaimed debut EP COLLXTION I caught the attention of Pitchfork, The FADER, Stereogum, Nylon and more and made fans out of Katy Perry and Troye Sivan, who Allie X supported on his North American tour after co-writing a number of songs on his debut album including hit single “Youth.” PRESS HERE to listen to COLLXTION II via Spotify, and PRESS HERE to watch to official video for single “Paper Love.”
VÉRITÉ also made her full length debut this spring with her new album Somewhere in Between, out now on Kobalt Music Recordings. V Magazine declared that the collection, which includes collaborations with producers Liam Howe (Lana del Rey, Ellie Goulding, fka twigs), Tim Anderson (twenty one pilots, Solange, Mr. Little Jeans), Peter Thomas (Selena Gomez, Betty Who), James Flannigan and Zach Nicita, showcases the singer’s “ethereal penchant for making music with an air of moodiness,” while Interview Magazine called it “hypnotizing” and NPR deemed her vocals “spellbinding.” PRESS HERE to listen to the album in full via Spotify, where VÉRITÉ has accumulated over 135+ million streams to date.
