“Black coronary heart/ smoke lung/ I acquired a hearth on my tongue/trigger I Can yell like a gun…”
Doll Machine is a reasonably fascinating performer with an aura round her. Extremely ingenious and appear bent towards pushing previous conventions and expectations, there’s little or no for us to investigate proper now, as her streaming platforms solely include three songs together with this one, however we do know she’s labored with the likes of Telepop Musik, home legend DJ Robbie Rivera and proper now there’s additionally an incoming collaboration with Grammy-winning artist, Actually Doe. This shortage of launched materials beneath this pseudonym mystifies me greater than something as a result of whereas there are commonalities between all three tracks, they’re additionally extremely various and fill you with this nice sense of unknowing such as you’re sure she will and can shock you with one other distinctive new sound any day now. In the meanwhile, we’ll must make do along with her newest single, nonetheless.
Danceable, infectious, light-hearted… none of it must be or really feel careless or missing in delicateness, and in Doll Machine’s “Techno Cowgirl” all of those constructive qualities come collectively for a formidable and unforgettable observe that’s inviting in each manner and from each angle.
“Techno Cowgirl” options fairly a little bit of techno certainly, notably within the very danceable and enthralling beat that makes the core of the music work. From that groundwork, a number of eclectic but completely aligned components are woven collectively by Doll Machine into this digital-aged soundscape that hints at retro values (equivalent to synthwave) whereas being very forward-looking. It is clear that Doll Machine not solely has an ideal grasp of what “electro-pop” is true now however what else it could possibly be because it seems on the horizon for her.
in a little bit of a twist “Techno Cowgirl” appears a bit extra easy than her earlier two releases, not precisely standard although, however the music’s intent appears a bit clearer from each the upbeat dynamism of its music to the extra sensuous and playful vocals that Doll has adopted this time. it is also a bit denser in sound, much less minimalistic and maybe extra concerning the punchy hooks and infectious rhythm than something. All of this appears solely by design, “You need a Techno Cowgirl, yeah you need a Techno Cowgirl” she sings virtually with a understanding smile all through as if my pure response and impression of the music had been very a lot calculated from the beginning .
Regardless of the case, one factor is for certain. The self-aware digital-age vernacular of her lyrics and imagery, and paired with the utter moody sincerity of the synth soundscape have piqued my curiosity large time. I feel Doll Machine’s sound is cheeky and lighthearted nevertheless it’s additionally very glamorous and conceptual, one thing which I do not assume you hear day by day.
