Allie 'X' Hughes started off her music career as a Toronto-based musician performing with a few different bands in the city's indie scene, whilst trying to find her own style. She moved to Los Angeles in July 2013 after scoring a publishing deal and started working with producers Cirkut and Billboard, who have worked on songs by the likes of Britney Spears, Kesha and Katy Perry.
This song finds Allie X comparing the false hope of a dying relationship to a doctor-patient meeting, in which she is given a pill to deal with the emotional pain. "That kind of a relationship that you have with a doctor is very personal and very clinical at the same time, which I find fascinating," she told Billboard magazine. "The idea of this person that solves all of your problems with a pill - that's something that I wanted to play around with. Those concepts filtered through my romantic feelings that I was experiencing at the same towards other people. It's about not even necessarily love, but that feeling of dependence on somebody and being completely paralyzed."
The song captured attention after Katy Perry posted on Twitter that she is "obsessed" with the tune calling it a "SPRING JAM."
If counterpoint and polyrhythms are your thing, you might love these guys. Even by Progressive Rock standards, they were one of the most intricate bands of the '70s. Then their lead singer gave us Bon Jovi.
