Transcend, Pope's latest weapon, is explosive, electronica that swaggers with rhythmic confidence while Pope's husky vocals both dare and deliver with the swelling abandon for which she's known. 'World Of One' is dark and smoky, a visceral and sexy send off. 'I won't play nice and make it easy/ In your world of one,' Pope promises. In 'Dream6' she blends the lure of desire with relentless, restless guitar riffs. 'Americana' is a delicately hypnotic tour of landscapes and politics. 'We ventured into some kind of unholy covenant/ With the government/ The rat pack, the leader, the freak, the conformist/ The screamer, Hey! That's me! Let's go down to Washington/ The mountains, the citadels, the place of detention/ The literal, the visceral, all our good intentions/ Get out of the car, run screaming.' XTRA Magazine With three Juno Awards, a Genie Award, and four Gold and two Platinum records to her credit, Carole Pope is an icon of transgressive music. Throughout her career, Carole Pope has blazed a trail for the anti-diva in all of us. In sharing her thoughts on sexuality and sexual politics, her music makes you 'Think and dance at the same time.' She has contributed music to film and television, including The Trailer Park Boys Movie, The L Word, The Five Senses, and Queer As Folk. She is the author of a best selling autobiography entitled Anti Diva published by Random House. The film rights were recently optioned.
