Poppy unleashes creepy music video, experimental new song “Voicemail”
“Voicemail” continues down Poppy’s dark, alternative path more so than ever before.January 31, 2019
Turns out, Poppy wasn’t telling people to leave her a voicemail for nothing. Just three months after dropping Am I A Girl?, Poppy dropped a brand-new song called, “Voicemail.” Additionally, she released what may be the creepiest music video of hers to date for the single.
In the black and white music video, Poppy’s eyes become a void of darkness with solid contacts. Dressed in a black bodysuit with feathers coming out of her shoulders, the artist is giving us some major black-eyed children vibes.
According to Forbes, collaborator Titanic Sinclair shot and directed the music video for “Voicemail.”
“This was the first music video that we’ve done just us two together, we usually get some help but we wanted to see if we could make something magic,” Poppy says in an interview with Forbes. “My favorite lyric is probably in the first verse, the one about “Blood on my necklace and blood on my clothes.””
Additionally, Poppy announces that she will be releasing an album this year. In the interview, she says “post-genre” describes the type of music she believes she is currently making.
However, her transition into the alternative sphere doesn’t come as a surprise. After she claimed that current pop music was “dead,” Poppy seems to be taking it upon herself to change the landscape of the genre, or potentially, create a new one all her own.

Recently, Poppy shared that she is releasing her own graphic novel come July called Genesis 1. The graphic novel is said to answer many burning secrets about Poppy and her origin story. You can preorder your copy of Genesis 1 here.
