dodie Announces New EP ‘Hot Mess’

And the title track is online now...

dodie has laid out plans for new EP ‘Hot Mess’.

The incoming pop statement lands on September 30th, and it’s a conscious attempt to work through her “intense, painful and exhilarating” start to 2022. Taking those emotions into the studio, she’s aiming for pop catharsis, with dodie’s diaristic approach infusing each song with potent honesty.

As she puts it…

“Hot Mess is the result of the messiest, most intense, painful and exhilarating start to the year. It’s a wonky, dramatic but playful cycle – charging forward but around and around, again and again. There are flickers of real moments (I really did dry heave after reading a text) in an overall desperate plea to find a way out that in no way is going to come from me!”

Need an example? Well, look no further.

The title track is online now, a bubbling slice of alt-pop that fuses bewitching ear-worm melodies with dodie’s lyrical twists. An ever-intimate statement, it’s matched to a sunshine-strewn visualiser that seeks out optimism.

Tune in now.
