Nicole Dollanganger started to post music on Tumblr in 2012, while she was sick in bed and stuck in her bedroom for a year. After releasing a couple of homemade albums on her own, she was exposed to a larger audience when she opened for Lana Del Rey and Grimes last June. With Dollanganger in mind, Grimes subsequently founded the "collective-slash-artist-incubator," Eerie Organization, and released Dollanganger's new LP, Natural Born Loser, in October – her first made in a proper studio. Dollanganger’s music might be sparse and rootsy, but her dark lyrical themes conjure around violence and kinky sexuality. She’s been compared in some extent to Lana Del Rey, but as Spin underlined in their recent album review: DzThe two really don’t have all that much in common - they’re on the same cross-country road trip, but in Badlands, Dollanganger would claim the role of a murderous Martin Sheen, with Del Rey the bored and confused Sissy Spacek."
