South African-born, L.A.-based arty pop artist Binx told us back in August that she makes pop music with African influences. “One of my songs, ‘African Heart,’ I sing in three traditional South African languages. My fashion style is super avant-garde. Anything that is over-the-top, statement and bold, just like my personality!” She can often be seen dressed in full-on bumblebee outfit — a yellow and black striped leotard — so some might think she’s a modern pop Stryper. In all honesty though, Binx is a pop artist that more people need to know about. Fresh, forward-thinking and utterly fascinating.

Binx plays the Hunnypot night with Zana Messia and Oppenhiemer at 7 p.m. on Monday, March 2 at The Mint.
