    Her strongest effort to date with the new mixtape, “Bubblegum.” Her distinctively wispy voice and sinewy grooves have created a trademark sound — somewhere between Charli XCX and Pink Pantheress — that’s pop without being cheesy and dance-based without sacrificing melody or shunning melancholy.

    By tying together contrasting sounds and stories into this brilliant collection, Biig Piig embraces the joy of reinvention.

    The mixtape allows space for this experimentation, jumping from one emotion to the next, yet finds consistency in Biig Piig’s inability to stand still.

    Though Bubblegum is brief, at seven songs, Biig Piig’s sound brims with poise and promise.

    It’s more than a taster but leaves plenty of room for development in the future, maybe experimenting with different instrumentation and letting the songs stretch out and breathe beyond their sub three minute durations. Until then, let Bubblegum ever so sweetly tear you apart.

    ‘Bubblegum’ is the most creative, well-thought-out and simply fun project to come out of the UK alt-pop scene in quite some time. Biig Piig continues to improve, every release getting her closer and closer to the stratosphere – and even that won’t stop her rise.

'bubblegum' successfully whets your palate without losing flavour and will likely have fans crossing their fingers hoping a full length album is in the pipeline. Expand
