Nessa Barrett
Pretty Poison

Nessa Barret's Pretty Poison album cover.

Genre: Alt-pop
Sound: TikTok-ready bangers with an edgy, new-wave emo twist
If you like: Melanie Martinez, renforshort, LILHUDDY
Why you should listen: Music releases from viral TikTok stars typically don’t have the greatest reputation, but Barrett’s fledgling music career looks promising: with vulnerable, angst-ridden songs about mental illness and teenage love (and some promising collaborations), she just might be a step above the rest.
Best track: i hope ur miserable until ur dead
