Choke is a welcome continuation of the darker themes and genre bending of Am I A Girl?

Jesus Christ this thing was so much goddamn fun to listen to.

Poppy clearly has got a lot of talent when it comes to constructing a bright catchy soundscape, however recently she's been integrating much moodier, much darker and much more heavy sound into her music, almost inspired by the likes of Slipknot, Nine Inch Nails and Marylin Manson.

Poppy's come and released some of her best tracks yet.
