EDITORS’ NOTES

With her 2015 debut, BADLANDS, Halsey joins Lana Del Rey and Sky Ferreira in penning a diary of the struggles and triumphs of being young and wild and female and free. Her neon-hued coo soars over Lido's clever electronic atmospheres; like an anime heroine, she climbs around a shifting 3-D terrain that mimics the drama of her futuristic emo-pop. "Drive" is teenage malaise played out on a highway of sunset-coloured guitars and gravel-coated beats; "New Americana" is a bad-girl anthem that name-checks Nirvana and riffs on The Notorious B.I.G.'s "Juicy" as it searches for meaning in the new millennium.
