Poppy - Poppy.Computer

Alright: so I like this record. I'd never heard of Poppy before this record – never heard of her YouTube channel, who she is, or her overall purpose – but on first listen, I immediately thought two things: Poppy is an art project commenting on contemporary obsessions with computers, the Internet and Internet fame that employs pop clichés or it's a completely shallow, unaware pop record. Thankfully, it's the former. On my second listen, "Poppy.Computer" revealed pretty dark themes, such as narcissism and delusions of self-grandeur, hidden underneath a bright, shiny pop veneer. Just listen to the lyrical undertones of the dizzyingly catchy yet sickening opening track "I'm Poppy." While there are some missteps – not a big fan of "My Microphone" – this record has some legitimately infectious songs, specifically "Bleach Blonde Baby." But, most importantly, at its very core, "Poppy.Computer" is a piece of art wearing the clothes of a pop record.
