Somewhat shockingly, I’d never heard of Canadian singer/songwriter Nicole Dollanganger before her support slot on a tour with Code Orange early last year. As someone who prides himself on keeping up with almost every promising new act and band in existence, the fact that I hadn’t discovered Nicole earlier was quite sad. Having had music featured on The Walking Dead and having toured in support of art-pop darling Grimes, I certainly was not disappointed when she debuted 5 new songs off her upcoming album, Heart Shaped Bed. The upcoming album is the long-awaited follow-up to 2015’s Natural Born Losers.
The songs, which can be streamed below, is hard to pin down genre-wise – but chances are if you like the dark folk/pop/awesomeness of Chelsea Wolfe and/or the confessional storytelling of Tori Amos, you’ll find a lot to sink your teeth in on the new record. Certainly one of the most intriguing new artists we’ve come across in a long time.
