Fresh off her controversial Grammy nomination for Best Metal Performance, self-described "post-genre" artist Poppy has dropped her timely new EP, A Very Poppy Christmas, which marks a sharp left turn from the aggro heaviness of her last full-length, I Disagree. The four-track release features three originals plus a stunning cover of the yuletide classic "Silver Bells," and it leans into the sweet-sad nostalgic vibe that can sometimes come with the winter holidays, channeling the slowcore melancholia of Low or even Deftones at their mellowest. Stream it via YouTube below or listen on the major digital music platforms.
