Klypi (pronounced like the Windows paper clip office assistant) is the “pop-star” avatar of AC Carter: multi-disciplinary artist from Birmingham, Alabama. Klypi is part electropop - part performance art. Now living in LA and signed to Lolipop Records, Klypi is prepared to release their first self-produced EP in June and Sophomore LP in November 2023.

Klypi is described as an alien who is trapped on Earth, and recognizes the only way to survive as a human is to become a successful businessman (as well to learn to tackle a whole range of human emotions and experiences). Isolation and unrequited love are just a couple themes that run through Klypi’s work.

Additionally, Carter states “What is it like to tell the story in real time of someone pursuing their dreams before they catch their big break?”

Previously, Klypi released their debut record titled Consensual Hits through Orlando-based Dark-wave/Goth Label Popnihil in 2021, and has toured the East Coast with Buddy Crime in Summer/Fall 2022.

Klypi has been reviewed by God Is In The TV, Pinstripe Magazine, WOTT, WUSSY MAG, Immersive, and others, and has also released an eyeshadow palette titled “You See Me” in tandem with Consensual Hits. They attended the Stove Works artist residency in Chattanooga in 2021, and Wassaic Project Residency in Winter 2022. Previously, AC has opened for artists such as Molly Nilsson, Girlpool, Shitkid, and Algiers, and has performed at festivals such as Big Ears, Secret Stages, and Athens Popfest.

A 2020 University of Georgia MFA Fine Arts Graduate in Athens, GA, AC has made garments for Kevin Barnes’ in the Of Montreal’s music video “Plateau Phase/No Careerism No Corruption”, and for Jennifer Vanilla’s performance at MoMA PS1.
