After various previews, teasing this moment with different announcements and singles “Bad Boy,” “Daddy,” “100 Bad,” and “Tommy,” Vancouver-bred Tommy Genesis has at long last dropped off her highly-anticipated self-titled debut.
Clocking out at a neat 12 tracks, the effort finds Tommy going solo for most of the project, save for a little help from Charli XCX (“100 Bad”) and Empress Of (“Naughty”).
This marks the first full-length outing from Tommy Genesis since 2015’s World Vision and effectively functions as a strong foot forward for the relative newcomer.
“The overarching feeling I would say is adrenaline mixed in with emotion,” Tommy tells Flauntof the new album. “The first half is super adrenaline; the transitions and everything cut really close. And then the second half is a little more emotional and vulnerable, but also kind of cheeky. To me, when I think about it, I see a lot of blues with splashes of red. Those were the concept colors. It’s like water. It goes really crazy sometimes, like waves, and other times it’s just calm, like me. It’s my self-reflection album.”
