    I have a thing for raspy voiced female singers of the 80's. Patty Smyth being a favorite.

    Gotta have something there to work with though, she really does have a sexy voice and can sing live. Studio processing is one thing, but remember...you can't polish a turd.

    Actually, you can. You DO know pop music is a conglomerate-engineered market study targeting low-information young adults for the purpose of selling them HydroPoxyClearPoreCleanserWithAloe...right? If the industry can polish said fecal artifact once...they can do it baby one more time...! :D

    You would not belIEVE how many girls there are out there who can sing reasonably well, as well as write their own songs (which Pop MusicTM does NOT encourage, because it takes away from their time posting free videos to do the record company's job for them)? The expensive studio tools and Swedish song"fixers" are to scare the majority of real talents out there from trying to compete.

    Honestly? I don't know what Halsey's actual voice sounds like, or how she uses it in the context of working up a song. All I know is, most of the attributes to her voice you really like, would not be there were it not some Greg-Kurstin-wannabe with his hand on a selenoid switch. I will say, she is attractive. But then, so are the majority of women under the age of which it would not be okay for me to even look at them.

    Bottom line, I will not disagree with your choice any further, because it's your choice.

    I agree with your passionate assessment of the music biz and pop music in general, but you are grossly overestimating how much "processing" is done to her voice. Don't let the electronic instrumentation alter your perception, the woman can sing. Over-processing her voice in the studio wouldn't make much sense anyway as she already has such a unique timbre and interesting, natural vibrato. Also, she's 23 man! Look and admire all you want!

    I'm confused; a song written with limited vocal range, and sung in the same no-dynamic style all the way through, drenched in auto-tune, mic gating and compression deeper than any other instrument in the recording - AND chipmunked-up...
    and this is intended as an example to prove your assertion...? :crazy:

    Could we not yank this thread all over the map please? I'm done with this.

    No, I didn't know her name either. She's the backing vocalist on Hyperactive by Thomas Dolby. I luuurv the part at the end, where she sings solo.
