Poppy has no regard for convention, genres, labels, assumptions, or expectations either. Instead, she eclipses all of them in the flames of an intensely uncompromising creative spirit with no rival. By burning everything down and building a vision of her own out of the ashes, she represents a future where high art and high fashion equal subversion of the highest order. Following a quiet grind, she reached critical mass with I Disagree. Beyond tallying 100 million-plus streams, it concluded 2020 on year-end lists by Upset [#1], Revolver, Popbuzz, Kerrang!, and more as she graced the covers of NME, Revolver, Upset, Kerrang!, and Tush. Standout “BLOODMONEY” even garnered a GRAMMY® nod for “Best Metal Performance,” lifting her to rarified air as the “first-ever solo female artist nominated in the category.” At the same time, she electrified the stage at the GRAMMY® Awards.
Throughout 2021, Poppy only maintained her momentum with the EAT (NXT Soundtrack) EP, and Flux (album). She steered the vision entirely—from the aesthetic to personally directing multiple videos. Casting a shadow over multiple forms of media, she has also penned two graphic novels, Genesis One and Poppy’s Inferno, and her short film I’m Poppy premiered at Sundance Film Festival during 2019.
During October of 2022, she released Stagger EP, premiering single “FYB” at Reading & Leeds.
“It’s an artist’s responsibility to always change,” she leaves off. “I don’t think I’d want to be in my body if I was repeating the same thing over and over again. I’m only competing with myself. I will continue to write the story until I get tired of the book. Then, I’ll write another one.”
