Melanie Martinez Mixes Music, Movies and the Macabre With ‘K-12’ (Exclusive Video)
Music and movies — beautifully strange movies — have always gone hand-in-hand for Melanie Martinez, whose feature directorial debut, “K-12,” will have a one-day-only theatrical engagement on Wednesday ahead of its worldwide streaming launch Friday.

Martinez was 16 when she debuted in 2012 on NBC’s “The Voice” with a downbeat acoustic cover of Britney Spears’ “Toxic.” The next year she launched an Indiegogo campaign to film her first music video, for her first single, “Dollhouse.”

The next year, she signed to Atlantic Records, which released her debut Ep, “Dollhouse,” from which the song “Carousel” was used for an “American Horror Story” Season 4 promo. This was followed in 2016 by her debut LP “Crybaby.” Through it all, she kept pitching ideas for videos, and her label trusted her to direct them.
