Needle Drop: 12xPretty, “Caliphornia”

Victoria BC-based electro-pop-rock blenders 12xPretty are back with a new sedated party anthem from the future.

“Caliphornia” is a meditation on emptiness, navigating the chasm of shame from a culture obsessed with surface level fulfillment. Like the song’s robotic croon, its images feel strangely detached—glimpses of a Bladerunner-esque future in which true love has been replaced by shadowy addictions to sex and narcotics.

It’s a bleak depiction of our collective fate, but it’s just as compelling, twisting Tinseltown illusions into a nightmarish potpourri of haunting images.

12xPretty’s debut self-titled album arrives in stores February 21.
