Melanie Martinez has been busy since appearing on The Voice as a teen in 2012. Her new pop confection “The Bakery” draws on her former job making baked goods, with a few distinctly adult references to the job.
“The Bakery” is not only the best straight-up pop song of the week by far, its vividly pastel-colored video combines sweetness with a disturbing sexiness, as it moves from scenes with a cute giant bunny and a vaguely Alice in Wonderland theme to a scantily clad Martinez grinding — and then there’s the parts where she’s a cookie that is baked and then eaten while the sexy Martinez looks more and more ghoulish and swallows a sword. Yep!
Here she is singing “Toxic” in a more innocent era:
