Win tickets to see Allie X at the Academy in Dublin • GCN

Multi-platinum singer Allie

Pop savant Allie Her fourth album, Girl Without Faceis described as “a maniacal journey through the mind of an artist who has just spent three years in isolation”.

The alt-pop record was inspired by British experimentalism and the early ’80s new wave scene, and the album cover shows Allie holding a cracked papier-mâché replica of her own face.

Allie said: “The best comparison I can make is deliberately locking yourself in a room and sitting in front of a mirror…” she added: “you get to know yourself well, you see your own ugliness, your limitations, your pain . It’s terrifying and enlightening at the same time. A total ego fuck.”

With songs like You slept on me And Out with her tits, Said

X added: “I always need a little camp, it offsets the dark thoughts in a necessary way.”

GCN was lucky enough to chat with Allie

When asked what it feels like to be ahead of the lonely producer, writer and creative voice Girl Without Face, Allie said: “It feels great! Although it certainly took its toll. I’m really tired and a bit frantic now. She added: “It made me trust myself more and I know I will be proud of this when I am on my deathbed.”

When it comes to getting back into the public eye, she said, “I feel validated by people listening to my music and seeing me perform. So it feels good that way. In other ways, I feel a pressure to catch up with everyone else again, to adapt to modern ways of creating content, and I don’t enjoy that pressure.

Allie said her show in Dublin will be the closest thing to a live rock show. She said: “That sounds a bit cheesy, I know, but there’s something raw and rebellious about this album that seems to translate well to a live show.”
