Melani Martinez's most notable hits include "Cry Baby", "Dollhouse", "Pity Party", "Soap", "Training Wheels", "Void", and "Play Date".
As her first tour since 2019 and 2020's K-12 Tour, Melanie Martinez looks forward to sharing her experiences through her lyrical tales and musical art back in live tour concerts.
"I hope the weight of mortality that society has placed on people becomes lighter. I hope grief becomes easier for people while listening to this record," Martinez wrote on Instagram about PORTALS as the record went live. "That they can enjoy this life to the fullest knowing that we’re all just here to grow, create, feel, and have shared experiences with one another to help each other evolve."
Featuring new anthems and tracks that accompany the listener's emotion, serving mature and deep themes and stories, "Martinez delivers an effortlessly inventive, mature record that reintroduces her as an artist unafraid to start from scratch and tackle complex, difficult ideas," Rolling Stone shared in a review of the album. "She’s letting us inside her world, and the story she tells is crystal clear."
PORTALS features introspective and emotive tracks including "Death", "Void", "Battle of the Larynx", "The Contortionist", "Moon Cycle", and "Light Shower". "All of the songs on this album are based on past-life-regression therapy books I’ve been reading for a few years now," the singer shared on Instagram. "All of them disguised with earthly themes for double/triple meaning, to create a frequency for humans to relate to while still here on Earth."
Driven by purpose and a deep understanding of life and humanity, Melanie Martinez hopes that PORTALS is able to create and bring life to shared experiences, hoping that humans can help one another evolve into better beings. "That they can enjoy this life to the fullest knowing that we’re all just here to grow, create, feel, and have shared experiences with one another to help each other evolve." she added.
With music described as "twisted lullabies about love, danger and madness" by Rolling Stone, and labeling her own music as "very dark and honest", Melanie Martinez is an artist driven by honesty and understanding every depth of emotion that humans face. With an image described as "doll-like and decidedly emo…hyperreal" by The Guardian, the singer never fails to deliver acclaimed live performances that send chills to every concert-goer.
