Backxwash, the Montreal-Ottawa metal- and goth-loving rapper, blew up in 2020, culminating in a Polaris Music Prize win for the deeply personal God Has Nothing to Do with This Leave Him Out of It. Next step after all that demon slaying is to deliver a bigger, brasher, and bolder follow-up, one that she’s been teasing on social media. We already know that Ada Rook, one-half of Toronto noise-pop duo Black Dresses, sings the hook of the project's songs, calling it Backxwash's "hardest song everrr" on Twitter. "This album is gonna break ur minds," she continued. Expect another big, busy year for the rapper. —Erik Leijon
