 SOUNDS LIKE: PEACHES, NIN (PRETTY HATE MACHINE), POPPY 



BIO


Klypi is the musical persona of AC Carter: multi-disciplinary artist from Birmingham, Alabama. Described as being: part obsessive-maker and part conceptual over-thinker, Klypi encompasses many of AC’s thoughts, eccentricities, questions, and passions.  Currently living in LA, AC moved from Nashville, TN in order to pursue their dreams of being a performing artist. Klypi is part pop (rising) star, part (start-up) CEO, and part (humanoid) alien whose sound is like a “dada-dream-cicle”, influenced by 80s synth and contemporary art history. Klypi teeters between a variety of different scenes, from industrial to pop, from music to art, being seen at hardware driven underground shows or the gallery space at a comedic performance night. Klypi has released their debut record titled Consensual Hits through Orlando-based Dark-wave/Goth Label Popnihil, and has toured the East Coast with Buddy Crime.

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. Additionally, they organized and produced Ad•verse, a festival and project series started in Athens, GA supporting up-and-coming solo and duo artists cross-genre, showcasing musicians, drag performers, performance artists, and visual artists. Currently, Klypi is working on some musical and visual collaborations, an EP, and is now signed with Wildflowers Agency.

QUOTES

 “...thrilling piece of the dynamic, forward-thinking pop that thrusts itself into the contemporary discourse around identity and gender...” Tom Phelan, Head On Sticks

Unapologetic...Consensual Hits is a fantastic introduction to a fascinating artist...Nick Roseblade, God Is In The TV

“Consensual Hits is an ambitious synth-pop album that, while downright Dada at times, is self-aware and deliberate with its various experiments.” Jessica Smith, Flagpole
