Billie Eilish has done it again with her first full-length album, WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO?. The album is a fresh alt-pop collection with slight hip-hop influences, a sound that is resonating ferociously with today’s teens.

Eilish, a Los Angeles native, grew up with her brother, Phineas, creating music together even from a young age. Phineas now works behind the scenes while Billie, only 17 years old, rises to fame. Her new album explores a darkness many mainstream artists have strayed from in efforts to maintain mass appeal. But what Eilish has capitalized on unlike many of her pop counterparts is the darkness many teens can relate to, some more than others. Even in the more lighthearted tracks on the album, an undercurrent of solemness and reflection litters the sound.

The album displays a wide range of styles, stretching from slow piano ballads like “when the party’s over” to more upbeat dance songs like “bad guy”. Eilish’s vocal versatility shines in this album. The earnest quality to her lyrics and emotion makes you believe that it was written on the road and recorded in her brother’s bedroom- not in terms of its quality, but in its exquisite vulnerability and transparency.

Billie Eilish, 17

While Eilish’s music isn’t for everyone, it is for a good number of today’s youth- over 5 billion streams worth. The EP she released prior to her newest album collected this massive online popularity, building a fan base of listeners anxious to hear her new projects when they drop.

WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO? is, as of April 2019, the second album on Billboard Top 200 and is expected to remain on the charts for the coming future.
