It’s been just about a year since Allie X popped onto the scene with the release of her stellar singles “Catch“, “Prime“, and “Bitch“. In that time, the Toronto-born songstress has built-up noteworthy praise in the blogosphere thanks to her distinctive sound of electro-driven dream-pop, all built around her provocative song-craft and wholly original persona. And now, after a year filled with “ones to watch”, Allie X officially premieres her very first music video for “Catch” and announces the release of her debut EP, CollXtion I! “I am very pleased to announce CollXtion I,” Allie X says of the release, “and hopefully answer some questions you and I both have. As you collect the pieces of CollXtion I, I hope you will feel comfortable to adopt X into your own life.” Released via X‘s own label, CollXtion I is a full multimedia Xperience centered around seven songs. It is the first in a series of CollXtions to be issued in the coming months. Designed as both a multimedia, narrative and collaborative experience, CollXtion I will be accompanied by a variety of features, including X‘s notorious spinning GIFs, some of the raw components used by X to create her striking work such as song stems and photo layers, and a comic which will reveal the first chapter in the Story of X. It’s not everyday we get a visionary like Allie X – If you haven’t already, get familiar now!
