Melanie Martinez is one of those rare artists who really commits to a concept, shape-shifting and all. You probably know her best by the “Cry Baby” character that defined her early career; sporting half-pink hair, adorned in doll’s dresses, maybe carrying a baby bottle. Check in on her now, and you’ll see her as a grotesque four-eyed naked alien creature — part Labyrinth, part Björk, all thrillingly weird. In the irreverent alt-pop that accompanies these alter-egos, she doesn’t slack either; throughout her discography, she unwaveringly confronts taboos amid gleefully catchy hooks.
Martinez rose to fame as a competitor on the third season of The Voice in 2012, aged 16. Coached by Adam Levine, she finished the competition in fifth place, with her versions of the White Stripes’ ‘Seven Nation Army’ and Alex Clare’s ‘Too Close’ both hitting the iTunes Top 10. In February 2014, she released her debut single ‘Dollhouse’, before signing to Atlantic Records and releasing an EP of the same name in April of that year. Her first US tour ensued that June, wrapping up in March 2015.
