(PCM) Halsey’s debut album “Badlands” has been unleashed and if she is not yet on your musical radar than you are about to get zapped, as Halsey is well on her way to superstardom.
“Badlands” was released via Astralwerks Records, which is an electronic imprint of Capitol Records, and is without a doubt one of the most refreshing and hauntingly beautiful albums to be released this year. Halsey’s raw honesty and emotion shine throughout the entire album and it is wonderful to see an artist that is not afraid to take a risk and put it all out there for the world to hear.
Halsey prides herself on her honesty and it immediately makes “Badlands” both memorable and incredibly relatable. She confronts the many hurdles that women must face, not just in the music industry, but in everyday life, head-on and sings openly about the trials and tribulations that come about in one’s journey into adulthood.
It is hard for us to pick even one track that stand-outs from Halsey’s debut release, as they all ebb and flow naturally into one another and we feel “Badland’s” is remincient to some of our favorite albums from the 90’s in the sense that you can just pop it in the CD player (or set up the mp3 playlist, these days) and just let your journey into the “Badlands” with Halsey begin!
Stand-out tracks: “Castle”, “Ghost”, “Roman Holiday” and “New Americana”
Halsey is gearing up to start her sold-out headlining run this fan and we certainly look forward to catching her performance at the upcoming Budweiser Made In America Festival in Philadelphia, PA.
