Doctrin is the brain-child of Australian-born, L.A.-based artist Dolly Denko and she has just released a new EP entitled: The Deep which is now available on iTunes. Her music is classified as a sub-genre call dark-pop but you really can not classify this firecracker of an EP. The single and video for “Give Me Love” was released on Vevo in December and even though this song is last on the track list, the tone has been set for the other songs on this extended play.
Dolly’s music to me solidifies the female voice and stance that is needed in today’s overwhelmingly exploited sales before substance industry. She is strong, she is talented and she has substance. Maybe she scares me a little, as I can picture her character from the G.M.L. video punishing me for having my cake and trying to eat it or maybe it is that intimidation that draws me closer to understanding what it is like to possess all of the assets that a woman has and we desire.
My favorite song on the EP is “Love Like This”. There’s something about the beat and Dolly’s delivery that has this song on repeat more than three times a listen. Perhaps this song exposes her weakness that is not shown as translucently in her other songs as she is on the brink of losing control and begging for her love to return but I doubt she actually would be the one on her knees pleading.
The Deep-Track List:
Love Like This
Ride or Die
Give Me Love
I strongly recommend that you keep an eye on any music that Doctrin puts out from now on and if you are a new fan check out any cataloged recordings as well. You can start here at dollydoctrin.com
