EDITORS’ NOTES

Some people spend their teenage years writing angsty poetry in a locked journal; Billie Eilish put her longing to music. She announced her arrival at age 14 with her haunting breakthrough single “ocean eyes,” which is packed with dreamy romanticism that appeals to her peers and elders alike. Her defiant alto is both relatable and otherworldly on the moody “when the party’s over” and the thumping, trap- and dubstep-inspired “you should see me in a crown,” from her 2019 debut LP WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO? Eilish is a decidedly 21st-century artist—the minimalist, inventive pop aesthetic that she's crafted with her brother/producer Finneas sounds future-proofed for the 2020s.
