Composition[edit | edit source]
"X" is a heavy metal, indie pop, and sunshine pop song that features contradicting verses and melodies between blisteringly brutal heavy metal in which the singer begs to be made bloody, and peaceful verses, accompanied by delightful harmonies. The song is in the key of F# minor with a BPM of 114.
Reception[edit | edit source]
Andy Hill from Gigwise states: "It’s a masterpiece. So much packed in – the legit death metal, the retro-horror shoutouts, the note-perfect peace and love hippy interludes. It’s her Bohemian Rhapsody. High art for the Ritalin generation.
Anna Fair from Altpress states: "While the peaceful verses are accompanied by delightful harmonies and a scene right out of the ‘60s, the immediate scene following is dark. Heavy metal guitars back Poppy’s vocals, and she gets her wish.
Browny Paul from Wall of Sound states: "Think of the sweet and innocent stylings of Babymetal, then imagine them singing about being covered in blood and shooting bullets and you won’t be too far off what this song is about."
