Single review by Mike O’Cull www.mikeocull.com
ANGELLiKEFiRE, a.k.a. Seattle native Angelica Marie Dresp, fearlessly pursues her own musical vision on her recent single “HaLLoWWHoLE.” The track is an attention-grabbing example of her self-created genre EmoTripPop, a gritty electronic sound that leans toward the abstract. Dresp is atmospheric, intense, and unsettling all at once in a brilliantly artistic way that listeners new to her work won’t soon forget. She uses hard-edged beats, evocative synthesizers, and emotional vocals to express her muse and the result is music that’s both inventive and important.
Dresp is a longtime underground creative who has worked as an actress, model, singer, and dancer. Knowing that, it’s no surprise that she has developed a musical style all her own that’s unlike anything else out there. She is in possession of an unshakable and forward-thinking sensibility that will keep fans in need of something unique coming back for more. Highly recommended.
