Billie Eilish has finally dropped her groundbreaking and spooky debut album, WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO?, which features previously released singles, “you should see me in a crown,” “wish you were gay,” “when the party’s over,” and “bury a friend.”
Eilish’s distinctive and unique genre of horror pop really takes the lead on the young singer-songwriter’s debut record, with eerie scary-movie-style beats and transient, intense vocal lines. Eilish may be only 17-years-old, but she knows who she wants to be and the kind of music she wants to make, as she has really honed her darkly complex, bewitching, angst-filled sound throughout these fourteen tracks. Although she’s really locked her persona in, there’s still a perfect balance of variation on the album, offering up a couple of slower, yet still moody tracks like “xanny” and “when the party’s over.”
Filled with sickly-sweet hits and bass-heavy bangers, this album is paving the way for an entirely new, subversive style of music. WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO? travels from creepy, warbling beats to silky, heartbreaking ballads, ultimately wrapping the record with the vulnerable, melancholic tracks like “i love you” and “goodbye.”
