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 soon to follow.
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.
Previously, Klypi released their debut record titled Consensual Hits through Orlando-based 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 self-produced an eyeshadow palette titled “You See Me” in tandem with the album.
Performing as other aliases, AC has opened for artists such as Molly Nilsson, Girlpool, Of Montreal, and Jennifer Vanilla, and has performed at festivals such as Big Ears, Secret Stages, and Athens Popfest.
