Queensland musician DOOLIE AKA Doolie Shadforth has created a playfully relatable new single, ‘Attention’, featuring South Australian electronic pop-rap duo China Roses.
DOOLIE, the 21-year-old artist who is known to blend pop, R&B and electronica, expresses the frustration that comes with not getting attention from your crush.
The artist explains: “I wanted every line in this song to be relatable; it’s all about that person you're trying to reach and just can’t quite catch”.
The contrast of DOOLIE’s voice with that of Jes from China Roses sounds completely flawless. DOOLIE says “Having China Roses feature felt like that obsessive back and forth my girlfriends and I would have about someone we liked”.
The rhythm switch up when China Roses comes in before the final chorus is an undeniable track highlight. Jes, a fan of DOOLIE, says they [China Roses] were really excited to be a part of the track. She also added that she felt really inspired by DOOLIE’s lyrics and imagery while working with her.
“It was one of those times where everything felt like it clicked… Really smooth production, a great hook and a relatable theme,” says Jes.
Melbourne producer GXNXVS compliments the cheeky vocals substantially by introducing a smooth R&B melody with heavy, pulsing bass.
The cute, sad and needy vibes within ‘Attention’ must be heard. Stream DOOLIE’s fresh tune below.
