Robyn’s latest EP, Do It Again, was released in May to enthusiastic reviews. She’s on tour behind it now, but when she released a fiery music video for the title song on Tuesday, the music world shifted focus immediately. That’s because Robyn is unlike most every other female pop star, and most of them are following her lead. She’s pioneered the biggest recent shift in American pop with her refusal to sugarcoat even the biggest anthems and her dedication to cathartic darkness. When she makes a move, everyone watches.
Her influence can be felt all over the charts
