2015 EU issue on vinyl -An internet phenomenon, New Jersey's Ashley Frangipane, aka Halsey, parlayed her over 16,000 YouTube subscribers into a record deal with Astralwerks at age 18, a deal based primarily around her moody, synth-heavy single "Ghost."

19-year-old musical powerhouse and provocative pop ingénue Halsey captivates on first listen, displaying a song-craft and lyrical sensibility far beyond her years. With left-of-center dark-pop hooks, sultry vocals and unapologetic honesty, Halsey is an undeniable force to be reckoned with both on stage and in the studio.

Halsey is New Jersey native Ashley Frangipane. Halsey (an anagram of her first name) is taken from the “Halsey” stop on the L train to Brooklyn. It’s an appropriate representation of her alter-ego, having been born in New Jersey, but defined by the city of New York. She infuses her sugar-spun pop with a purposefully bitter aftertaste that is quite tongue-in-cheek.

On the debut single “Ghost,” from her debut studio album Badlands Halsey explores the tragic and laughable intimacy of human relationships in her signature take-no-prisoners approach. “I’m ecstatic to have found a home with Astralwerks because they embrace me for who I am, appreciate my honesty, and recognize that an artist needs creative freedom in order to thrive,” explains Halsey on her decision to sign to the label.

“It was love at first listen,” explains Astralwerks General Manager Glenn Mendlinger on signing Halsey to the label. “We heard “Ghost” and a few in-progress demo tracks on a Thursday afternoon and offered her a deal the very next day. It was clear from the outset that Halsey was a prodigious new talent we wanted to work with and I am thrilled to welcome her to the Astralwerks family.”
